Oakland's Chinatown is the real deal. Frequented primarily by locals, it is not touristy like San Francisco Chinatown. Residents shop the lively markets with well priced produce filling the streets. The many restaurants offer all varieties of Chinese food. My choice for dim sum is Legendary Palace. Lots of great reasonably priced choices. On a recent lunchtime visit, most in the restaurant were locals, a good sign.
