Chinatown - a unique product of a period time when Chinese immigrants first came out to America, Europe and other major cities all over the world. I used to distance myself from them as they are usually backward and sometimes peppered with litters and run down buildings. It's how those places get away with taxes to the IRS. If you want good Dim Sum/Chinese food, head out to the Sunset area or Richmond area.
San Francisco’s Chinatown contains the largest Chinese population outside of Asia. As a result, the culture is robust, from arts organizations like the Chinese Cultural Center to the annual Chinese New Year festival every February. China Live, a two-story marketplace, retail space, food demonstration hall, and high-end bar and restaurant, is a must-see, as are the neighborhood’s quirkier, divier watering holes, like Buddha Lounge and Li Po Cocktail Lounge. Grant Avenue, the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare, is dotted with shops, bakeries, and grocers.
