Chinatown is near Boston Commons. Great authentic food at inexpensive price. If your tired of the expensive seafood places, this is a great alternative.

and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest
