- Dim Sum Restaurants
San Francisco's Chinatown is is one of North America's oldest and largest — it's reportedly
the largest in the nation
New York City's Chinatown runs a close second. Jam-packed with little restaurants,
dim sum parlors, Chinese markets, antique stores and more shops than
can count, it's a fun area to hang out, walk and people-watch,
especially during the annual Chinese New Year's Festival and Parade.
