When exploring this area, the best idea is to start with the enormous and ornate Chinatown Plaza. The colorful dragon-adorned is perfect for an Instagram picture!
Popular restaurants are Harbor Palace Seafood and Sam Woo BBQ. Also, a block away, there is Chengdu Taste that specializes in Sichuan-style cooking and serves dishes like pork dumplings in a broth spiked with namesake Sichuan peppercorns. China Mama is another delicious option. The restaurant aims to cover every region of China: noodles popular from the north and dishes rice-focused from the south. Its dumplings are very popular as well as the tea-smoked duck.
There are so many traditional restaurants here but District One is thoroughly modern while retaining its Vietnamese heritage. The decoration defined by street art makes this place a popular one, especially because of its seasonal seafood that includes sea snails and razor clams. A delicious option here is the Crispy Birds Nest Noodles with wok-fried shrimp, chicken, and beef.
Or how about a conveyor belt dinner? But don't freak out! There are no robots or factory food involved at the highly interactive Chubby Cattle. This place specializes in hot pot dishes with a Mongolian flair. When something you like passes near you, just grab it and bring it to your table! And don't worry if you don't know how long to cook sliced lamb or exotic mushrooms, the staff can always assist you!
