    Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
    to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
    simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
    a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
    over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
    Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
