As a native Chicagoan, I felt ashamed that I hadn't really explored Chinatown. Sure I've eaten at restaurants there, but really walking the neighborhood and seeing what it has to offer is something I've been meaning to do for a very long time. So last Saturday, I finally got a chance to explore a bit with a friend.
This bi-level area is called Chinatown Square, which is like a one stop shop for this community.
Just some of the things you will find in the plaza are; specialty groceries, bakeries, hair salon, gifts, tea shops, and a plethora of restaurants to choose from.
I found the best candy in this shop!
I love my sweets! Here are the goodies I bought. Nothing like trying something new and actually enjoying it.
I even found my families shop! But seriously, peeking inside and reading the restaurant menu, this is actually a restaurant that I want to go back and try. Once I do, I'll be sure to report back for the blog.
If you are ever in Chicago, make sure you take some time to explore Chinatown, you will not be disappointed.
