About this time last year, I was dating this Chinese boy from Cali & HK. He really loved beef jerky which is kinda weird (which probably one of the many reasons it didn't work out). =X
I thought that beef jerky was just beef jerky, but I learned a thing or two about it. In Chinatown there are actually two famous places that produce their own beef jerky. There are also different variations of the product as well.
One location is on Bayard Street between Mott and Mulberry. There is also one on Mulberry street across from the park.
