Wo Hop

  • s

Will be visiting early Jan. Wo Hop was recomended by my doctor who is a new yorker. He says it the best food in chinatown. What do u chowhounds say?

  1. Wo Hop is no good whatsoever. It may have been once (I have older relatives with fond memories). Search the board, there are tons of great options in Chinatown.

    1. I say your doc should stay out of his prescription cabinet. Seriously, Wo Hop has its fans, but I think there are many better choices. If you are looking for Cantonese in Chinatown (assuming so since Wo Hop is), here are some ideas:

      Noddleshop/Hanging Meats:
      NY Great Noodletown
      Wing Wong

      Oriental Garden
      Kam Cheuh



      1. Wo Slop? You're joking right?

        1. I always love Grand Sichuan on 24th and 9th Ave, I prefer it to all the Chinese food in Chinatown.

            Yes! Grand Sichuan is fantastic.

            Sadly, we also fell for the Wo Hop hype once.

              Grand Sichuan on Bowery and Canal puts most places to shame- on quality..and heat.

                Exactly right. Wo Hop is the place to go between 1:00-5:00. Won Ton soup, Pork Egg Foo Yung and a noodle dish will hit the spot. If you are in Chinatown when other places are open, do take the walk down.

            2. there is no better restaurant in chinatown at 4 am while drunk

                Yes! Exactly right. Go to Wo Hop between 1:00-5:00 a.m. Won Ton Soup, Pork Egg Foo Yung, and a noodle dish will hit the spot. When other places are open, avoid the place and get something delicious.
