Where to Live
Chinatown is mostly made up of apartment buildings with renters making up the majority of the population in Chinatown, but there some newer condos and townhomes available for prospective homeowners. Occasionally, single-family homes are on the market. People like living in Chinatown because it provides easy commutes to San Francisco. The area towards the west end of Chinatown is closer to the Pacific Renaissance Plaza as well as more modern shops and daily conveniences.
Where to Eat
Chinatown is a foodie paradise, with restaurants, bakeries, and walk-up windows filling the 16-block area. The Pan-Asian food selection includes dumplings, banh mi, bao, noodles, and sweet items like milk tea and egg custard tarts. You really can’t go wrong with anything you try.
What You'll See
Walking through this bustling neighborhood you’ll see colorful murals and spacious sidewalks filled with tables selling food and cultural items. The neighborhood also hosts festivals celebrating Lunar New Year and other holidays. And of course, there’s plenty of sights related to Chinese culture to take in.
Friday Night Fun
Visit a hookah bar on 14th Avenue or a tiki bar on 14th Street for tropical drinks and delicious food. Enjoy dinner or late-night snack at one of the many Chinatown restaurants that stay open late.
The Perfect Sunday
Chinatown is busy with groups of people enjoying a traditional Sunday activity: dim sum, the Chinese version of brunch composed of tiny portions of food served alongside tea. Try one of the restaurants serving dim sum on 11th Street or 10th Street. Afterwards, wander the streets and enjoy the sights and smells of this authentic Chinatown. If you are in the market for Pan-Asian cultural items, shop at one of the small stores or open-air markets in the area that fill the streets.
