Victoria’s Chinatown is impressive and quite the sight to see, with its Buddhist temple and even a Chinese public school. But we know there is also a culinary attraction in this area of the city that you simply shouldn’t miss.
Keeping the Traditions Alive
There are venues where you can eat while walking down the colorful streets of this Chinatown, and many of them aim at keeping Chinese traditions alive. Such is the case of places like I Kyu Noodles, where you can eat hand-made noodles, wonton and dumplings that are really something else.
If you are more in the mood for seafood at a place where you can enjoy a lovely view, then perhaps Don Mee will fit the bill. They serve typical dim sum lunches like Stuffed Crab Claws, shrimp dumplings, and stuffed rice rolls that you can get with shrimp, minced meat or BBQ pork.
Embracing Other Cultures
Since the Chinese living and working at Chinatown are far from isolated from the rest of the country, you can also find restaurants like Brasserie L’ecole. This French restaurant will provide tasty meals like steak and Frites to contrast the vibrancy of Chinese culture around you.
There are places like Habit Coffee, where you can just go enjoy a cup of coffee made up of locally roasted beans that are freshly ground for you. If you prefer tea, there are venues like Silk Road where you can find a wide variety of options for this beverage and finish with a massage.
Victoria’s Chinatown is a colorful and vibrant place, filled with venues to experience different cuisine and without having to travel too far.
