11. Wo Hop
Open 24 hours, Wo Hop is a great choice for late night Chinatown dining. Chop suey, chow fun and other typical Cantonese dishes are delicious, if a little greasy. Service is quick, and there is a steady stream of customers no matter when you dine. The walls are plastered with photos of customers, some famous, but mostly not, giving you something to look at while you wait for your food at this subterranean restaurant.
