Chinatown is one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in Toronto. It's always nosiy and crowded during the weekends. You'll see stores with their products (especially fruits and vegetables) proudly display on the sidewalk. Prices are slightly cheaper and fresher for the produce compared to those in the supermarkets.

There are many restaurants in the neighbourhood as well, most are Cantonese, serving a large varieties of food such as bbq pork, seafood, noodles and rice. There are also hot pot restaurants, where you cook your food in a big pot of soup bases, and Sichuan restaurants if you like hot and spicy food.

In recent years, there are many Vietnamnese restaurants in Chinatown as well. Their specialities include Vietnamnese noodles in soup and Vietnamese buns (hot dog shaped buns filled with meat and veggies).
