Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and

Take the 192 Rocket to the subway and take the subway into Downtown. $3 compared to $22. No brianer. Use google maps to work out the stops - thats what we did and saved $80 for our round trip.

Yep I agree with the other comments, there was a great health food store just between Kensington and the Main Street in China Town.
