This community has numerous amenities available for residents to enjoy.
Chinatown is composed of a wide range of home designs and prices to suit your financial budget.
Where to Live
Chinatown is mostly made up of apartment buildings with renters making up the majority of the population in Chinatown, but there are a few homeowners living in single-family homes scattered throughout the area. People like living in Chinatown because it offers affordable housing and provides easy commutes to San Francisco. The area towards the west end of Chinatown is prime for renters as the apartments are newer than in the rest of Chinatown. This section of the neighborhood is also closer to the Pacific Renaissance Plaza as well as more modern shops and daily conveniences.
Where to Eat
For Cambodian food try family-owned and operated Phnom Penh House at 251 8th Street. Since 1986, this restaurant has delighted residents and visitors to Chinatown with its authentic cuisine. Another local favorite is an independently owned Filipino restaurant located on Broadway, which serves hearty pulled pork sandwiches. If you're craving something savory, stop in at one of the restaurants along 13th Street for burgers, fries, locally brewed beers, and homemade shakes as well as other traditional American fare.
