Enter this cozy spot and take in the great aromas of salami, olive oil and such. Ordered the North Beach. Perfection. Select your own fresh bread and the order is made as you wait!!

Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
