Pings & Caffe Palermo: Around the world in two blocks

Best Cannoli in the Universe?
Crossed off two items on our checklist this afternoon: Dim Sum in Chinatown and Cannolis in Little Italy.

We dragged our out of town guests to meet up with my high school friend, his wife, and his wife's family at Ping's in Chinatown for some Dim Sum. I for one was very happy that my friend's wife is from China, because she took care of the ordering and made sure there were always new delicious dishes on our table. I decided to be adventurous and tried chicken feet, but stopped while I was ahead and opted out of trying the tripe. Next time perhaps. The dishes kept coming until we were all fully and happy and then when we got the bill we were happier still. All that food and endless tea for $12 per person!

Next we headed over to Canal street and got some coffee and cannolis at Caffe Palermo. They claim not just to have the best cannolis in Little Italy, or New York, or even the US, but the ENTIRE PLANET. And while I can't speak to that, it was pretty darn good, if a little pricey for a few cannolis and some coffee.
