Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas

wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
