Discover the very best of Chinatown's culinary delights in a Dim Sum safari.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Chinatown is not for the faint hearted. It comprises of just a couple of streets. Windows are filled with roast ducks, lanterns hang from the doorways and chairs are dotted up the street with masseurs vying to sort out your shoulders. As you walk under the Chinatown arch past street artists and glance into the exotic grocery stores you are hit with a serious dilemma. Which restaurant is worth visiting and which is just a tourist trap. Get it right and you enter chopstick heaven. Get it wrong and the experience can be very underwhelming.
