kosher keeper working in chinatown
i just started a new job in the court house area right in chinatown in manhattan. this seems like it would be fantastic, considering the amazing and cheap food in the vicinity. the problem is that i eat i guess what would be called "kosher-style" by some. i don't eat pork (or dairy and meat combined, but that's not really a problem in chinese food). i do, for some unknown but glorious reason, eat seafood. but because of the lack of detailed labeling in many chinatown restaurants and because of the huge amount pork in chinese cuisine, i haven't really been brave enough yet to get any food in chinatown. all that explanation just to ask if anyone could recommend easy lunch dishes or places to eat where i could be sure to avoid the porky menace.
