Chinese Food at 3am…

… it’s just as amazing as you could imagine!

After inadvertently helping ring in Canada Day at a Canadian bar in midtown the other night (a whole different story), Yang and I decided that a largely-sized snack was in order before getting back to our Financial District quarters and hitting the hay.

Thanks to Yang’s keen sense of direction and vast knowledge of delicious food (or, more commonly known as his iPhone), we found ourselves at 69 Chinese Restaurant. The small, hole-in-the-wall type eatery is in the heart of Chinatown and is probably the single place in all of Manhattan where you can score tasty, authentic Chinese food on a 24 hour basis.

The walls and ceiling of 69 Chinese Restaurant are completely adorned with dollar bills – a pretty insane sight that you have to see for yourself.

As we settled into a small table, I was anticipating an awesome and filling meal much like the first I had with Yang in Chinatown last month. With such high expectations, it wouldn’t have been hard for me to leave disappointed. Did I, though? Of course not. I paid $5.95 for a ridiculously huge plate of fried rice that also served as my dinner the next night, and tasted indescribably amazing.

If you haven’t yet, make sure you get over to Chinatown for a low in price, high in quality feast – out of brief experience, I would recommend either Shanghai Café or 69 Chinese.
