Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the

through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum
cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the
