  • I just went to lunch and if I found authentic Chinese food there, I think if you take a free tour you can learn more about the history of that neighborhood, all I found to do there was eat and buy.

  • Actually, we had more expectations. It's a street, more than a Chinatown. It is not entirely clean, and there is no greater preservation of Chinese culture. An important aspect for people who are looking for cultures. I would return to some Chinese Restaurants of Chifa food, which are more traditional and still persist, as secluded spots. Anyway, it's worth knowing and taking some pictures on your traditional street.
