Chinatown boasts a variety of asian cuisine. There are mainly bakeries, bubble tea places, and restaurants influenced by different asian cultures.
Nan Zhou Hand Drawn Noodles House: When you walked into the store, the atmosphere is great. The resturant is filled with delicious mouth watering smell that will not let you go elsewhere. The house special noodles is the best of them all. It contains hand drawn noodles, which are chewy, seasoned beef, bok choy, and special soup that goes along with it. It also have self served prickled vegetables on each table to add in a sour appetizing crunch to the noodle soup.

Pho Xe Lua: I have been a regular customer for 10 years and their vietnamese noodle soup have not failed me. Also, the special vietnamese shrimp rolls with peanut sour and spicy sauce are a must, if you have a refreshing appetizer to help you clear up your taste buds for the flavor blasting noodle soup.

Sakura Mandarin: If you like sushi, lo mein, and some mouth watering hotnessness of the steam buns. Then, this is the place you should visit. Most of the dishes are modernized to suit Western taste buds, but still have the authentic falvors in it as well.
