Wo Hop Restaurant
A quirky, subterranean Chinese style diner, Wo Hop is a perennial Chinatown fave that's been around since 1938. Wo Hop offers all the familiar staples alongside more adventurous options like chicken with oyster sauce and meat-and-egg stuffed crab. It hits the spot on all the comfort food fronts, and it's open until 7am to quench late-night munchies.
Owned and operated by the same family since 1938, this NYC institution is one of the neighborhood’s most iconic eateries and has a loyal clientele of both New Yorkers and out-of-towners. Located in a basement off Mott St. and accessible through a flight of stairs with its signature red tiles, what you’re there for is Wo Hop’s Cantonese menu.
How to order: Call 212-962-8617 for takeout.
What the team says: “If you’re looking for any seafood delicacy, this is your place. You must try their Clams, Oysters, Snails, and Salt and Pepper Squid with Egg Gravy dish. If seafood isn’t your thing, then grab Beef and Corn over Rice with Egg Gravy or the Beef Chow Fun. If you’re with a group, go family-style so you can have a variety of dishes that will fire up the taste buds.” -Tim
