Eats: Ling Kee Jerky (NYC)

Yeah, yeah, another Asian spot in Chinatown/ LES, I know. But what can I say, I spend a lot of time there and I'm always looking for good cheap eats. So if you're done whining, check out why Ling Kee reigns supreme amongst jerky enthusiasts in New York...

Ling Kee is tucked away in an awkward corner of Canal St. right off of Essex St. in downtown Manhattan. Another place where the awning doesn't stand out one bit from the rest of the block so pay attention if you're in the area.

Ling Kee serves up nicely cut slabs of delectable jerky in about 8 different flavors. The traditional beef jerky has a nice smokey taste and perfectly chewy texture, while the pork jerky is much more sweet and fatty, and comes apart like butter. Both are pretty fantastic depending on your taste buds, and the spicy versions of both are my personal favorites (the "spicy" isn't actually spicy at all, just a little more flavor so don't be scared). However I haven't had the pleasure of trying the chicken jerky or shrimp pork jerky, so those might be even better! Each flavor is about $4.50-6 for 1/4lb, which is a pretty sizable snack for two people.
