I’m a chef with the bulk of my experience in New York City fine dining. My interest for Chinese cuisine has grown to passion after moving to Manhattan's Chinatown several years ago. This neighborhood became my true home as I’ve built relationships with local small business owners over the years. I’m passionate about sharing my love for Chinatown, its food & history with others.

This was such a special experience and Chad was a big part of that! His insider knowledge of the area/food and taste in food was great. We truly enjoyed it and will recommend this tour to many friends in the future.

This was a great tour of Chinatown. Chad is a chef who loves food and the Chinatown community. He took us to 3 delicious spots and made great recommendations.

Chad hosts a great tour from a unique perspective. ChinaTown is vibrant and fascinating to explore but the extent of options can be a bit overwhelming for someone not familiar with the area. Two people in our group were visiting from out of state and two people live in upper west side and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and he happily accommodated the vegetarian in our group as well. We learned about the history and culture of the area while enjoying a sampling of a chef’s personal favorite DELICIOUS food finds. Highly recommend Chad as a host and his thoughtful tour

My daughter loves this experience! She and I are foodies. She loves Asian culture and wants to become a chef as well. We enjoyed trying foods from Chad’s favorite locations. We would have not known where to start on our own. He also gave us quite a bit of history on China Town as we walked, which I really enjoyed.

What a great experience! Chad was an amazing host really knew his history and go to spots to eat at in Chinatown. For someone who is from Lower Manhattan, I left with some new knowledge, along with places where I will definitely be returning to eat.
