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.

Fany Gerson is a chef, consultant, teacher, speaker, and cookbook author. She was born and raised in Mexico City and her work has been featured in the New York Times, Food and Wine, Fine Cooking, Saveur, Fine Cooking, Fast Company and Inc magazines, among others. She has also been featured in Food 52, The Insider, The Cooking Channel, Steve Harvey Show, and collaborated with brands such as Nike, Budweiser, The EGG board, Callebaut chocolates, Volcan Tequila to name a few. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Fany has worked in a range of fine-dining kitchens around the world including 3 Michelin starred Akelare in Spain and Eleven Madison Park in New York.

Fany launched the acclaimed La Newyorkina, an artisanal Mexican frozen treats and sweets business in 2010. She was the Chef and co-founder of Dough, an artisan gourmet doughnut shop in New York and the newly opened Fan-Fan Doughnuts.

In 2009, I spent a year doing research & traveling through Mexico to write my first book “My Sweet Mexico.” That experience changed my life.

When I returned to New York, I knew I wanted to share and celebrate the amazing frozen treats & sweets of Mexico.

I wanted to have my own business, but I didn’t know what to do since I wanted to do it all. One day, I had a dream that I was going to open a Mexican ice cream shop in New York. That’s how I decided to start with paletas, the quintessential frozen treat in Mexico. I thought I could test the idea without spending money on an ice cream machine and see how New Yorkers liked the sweet flavors of Mexico.

My mission is to share the sweetness of Mexico; I also strive to create the kind of company that people want to be a part of, support, work for, and partner with. I have tried to build a strong local community in the relationships we have with customers, growers and anyone else that is involved.

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.

Chocobar Cortés

Mott Haven (Bronx) Location

A FAMILY COMPANY
Chocolate Cortés is a 4th generation, family-owned, Caribbean, bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturing company. Originally established in the Dominican Republic in 1929 by Don Pedro Cortés Forteza, his pioneer spirit promptly moved him to export, and subsequently begin production of Cortés products from his native Puerto Rico; thus paving the way to fulfill his vision of developing Caribbean grown cacao to its fullest potential. Known for its rich and delicious hot chocolate, Chocolate Cortés quickly became a favorite of Puerto Rican and Dominican households to this very day.

The original Chocobar Cortés location, which opened in Old San Juan in 2013, often tops review and travel websites.  In the Dominican Republic, Cortés has cocoa plantations and a popular brand, Embajador, that uses the Cortés logo. A visitor center, with a cafe led by Ricardo de Obaldía, the chef of the Chocobar in San Juan, opened in September at a Cortés factory in Santo Domingo.

The Bronx restaurant, modeled after the San Juan location, continues the company’s tradition of using chocolate in varied and often surprising ways.
