Shopping in Chinatown, NYC

Chinatown, NYC
Taking the D express train to Grand Street Station will get you to the upper part of Chinatown in Manhattan.  Here, fruit and vegetable markets line the streets as well Asian groceries that carry a variety of spices, nuts, noodles, rice, dumplings, and soy products.  I find it both relaxing and adventurous to walk the streets and experience the vast selection of foods and flavors.  At my favorite Malaysian market on Bowery, between Broome and Grand Street,  you can pick up a variety of south-east Asian hot and spicy relishes, referred to as sambals.  Across the Street on Grand and Bowery, there is a little shop on the corner, where you can buy freshly made rice noodles, taro root cakes and soy milk.
