New Kam Hing Coffee Shop is a landmark of Chinatown. It opened its doors about 35 years ago and is famous for its light, fluffy, and moist sponge cakes.

Owned by the Yee family, Kam Hing is the mother shop to Tonii’s Fresh Rice Noodle, which opened it’s doors in 2019 and worked hard to stay afloat during the pandemic. The Yee family takes a lot of pride in both shops and their part of the rich history of Chinatown.

Tonii’s owner Elizabeth Yee says of her family businesses: “My family is what inspired me to open Tonii’s. Growing up, my siblings and I always had New Kam Hing as our home base. I would hang out there with my friends after school, and I would work there on the weekends with my brother. We would have family BBQs and holiday parties there as well. Having the store play such a central role in my life when I was growing up made me realize that if I opened a shop of my own, my kids would have a chance to make the same childhood memories. Thus, I opened Tonii’s for my kids’ future— so that I could give my kids a home base, and let them know that no matter what happens, their family is right there.”

Next time you’re in Chinatown we strongly advise that you stop by Tonii’s Fresh Rice Noodle for some fresh noodles and then swing over to New Kam Hing for Chinatown’s Best Sponge Cakes.

Pinklady Cheese Tart

Established during the summer of 2020, amid the uncertainty of the COVID-19 global pandemic, a cozy shop in New York Chinatown, called Pinklady, is the latest home for the irresistible ooze of sweet molten cheese in Japanese Cheese Tarts, which has been spreading around the globe. Founder Jean Lim grew up in Malaysia, where shops selling individual Japanese cheese tarts had been very popular with her friends and family for years. It was only in 2019, on a trip home from New York City, that she tasted one for the first time. “It was okay,” she said, “but it could have been cheesier.” The attraction of these cheese tarts is that eaten fresh out of the oven, their creamy middles offer an alluring molten melt of cheese, making them an instant Instagram darling.

Lim had moved to New York for a Master degree several years previously but realized that wasn’t the path for her. She had always imagined running a business. Armed with 5QT Kitchenaid mixer and an oven at home, Lim started testing her recipes for 6 months. Neighbors, friends and family all agreed that the cheese tarts were delicious before Lim she took a giant leap in 2020 and opened the petite Pinklady. “Life is short,” says Lim, “you have to go for your dream.”

Lim’s version of Japanese cheese tarts is she says, “less sweet, fluffier, easy to eat, and not heavy.” All 200-300 a day are made in the tiny kitchen at the back of Pinklady. Lim started with the original cheese flavor, which is still the most popular, adding 7 more options in a range of natural flavors and hues, (green matcha, purple ube, cocoa chocolate, silvery black sesame, original with blueberry filling, fruit flavors such as lemon and pink strawberry). The name Pinklady came to her in a dream.

Growing up in a small town in France just north of Paris, Dominique never set out to become a chef. At the age of 16, he began working at a local restaurant in order to help support his family. There was a free culinary school in his hometown, so he enrolled in their apprenticeship program, first as a savory cook and then as a pastry cook. It was the precision and scientific nature of pastry that appealed to Dominique immediately, and from then on, he knew what he was meant to do.

At age 19, Dominique went on to complete his military service in French Guiana in South America as part of a community program teaching locals how to cook. Upon returning to France, he used all of his savings to buy a beat-up car and drove to Paris, dropping off his resume at any bakery he could find. He later landed at the legendary French pastry shop, Fauchon, as one of 30 seasonal holiday workers. He was told that only one employee would remain at the end of the season, and when the time came, he was the one they chose. Dominique stayed on with Fauchon for nearly eight years, working his way up to lead international expansion, traveling the world opening new shops.

In 2006, Dominique moved to New York City with just two suitcases to serve as the Executive Pastry Chef of Daniel Boulud’s renowned restaurant Daniel. During his six years there, the restaurant earned its coveted third Michelin star and a four-star review from The New York Times.

In November 2011, with a team of just four employees, Dominique opened Dominique Ansel Bakery on a quiet Soho street. Serving both sweet and savory items with pastries reigning supreme, the bakery became a neighborhood destination and was named Time Out New York’s best bakery and Zagat’s highest ranked bakery in the city.

Since then, Dominique has also launched several successful endeavors including Dominique Ansel Kitchen, U.P. (short for “unlimited possibilities), Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel, and Dominique Ansel Workshop.

Throughout his career, Dominique has been honored with several awards and accolades, including Business Insider’s “Most Innovative People Under 40,” Vanity Fair France’s “50 Most Influential French in the World,” and Daily Mail deeming him the “most fêted pastry chef in the world.” He has also been named Dessert Professional’s “Top 10 Pastry Chefs in the United States” and Time Out New York’s “Top Ten Pastry Chefs You Need To Know.”

In 2014, Dominique won the prestigious James Beard Award for “Outstanding Pastry Chef” in the nation and was one of Crain’s “40 Under 40.” The following year in June 2015, he was bestowed the Ordre du Mérite Agricole award, the second highest honor in France, for his dedication to promoting French cuisine and culture. In 2017, he was named the World’s Best Pastry Chef by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards.
