In Victoria’s Chinatown, a new real estate development is about to spark the next era of a neighborhood already rich in character and energy.
Secret historic alleys and one-of-a-kind boutiques offer up a bevy of treasures worth coveting. These hushed spots are frequented almost exclusively by neighbourhood locals.
Locally sourced produce and meats are available at the many markets and grocers of Chinatown, daring residents to try their rookie hands at Szechuan home cooking. If things end up failing in spectacular fashion, don’t sweat it — there are more than enough lively restaurants willing to cook up something special.
