This thriving, bustling nerve center of Montreal's Chinese community teems with restaurants, unique craft shops, martial arts emporiums, exotic foods, herb and traditional medicine stores, Asian medical services and acupuncturists. Designed with pedestrian traffic in mind, the narrow streets are constantly packed with visitors and those who work in the area. Dozens of restaurants dole out weekend dim sum brunches and late-night victuals. At the entrance to the district are large arches, replicas of Imperial gates.
Montreal's Chinatown is, of course, not half as big as London's or N.Y's but, its a nice place to take a walk, shop around and eat out in various asian restaurants (Cantonese, Szechouanese, Vietanmese, Korean, etc). Personnally, I love spending my lunch break at a little Traditionnal Chinese square on De la Gauchetière just off St-Laurent...Try "Chez Bong"(on St-Laurent) their Korean BBQ Chicken and Kimchi rocks!
