    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
    and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
    Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
    people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
    products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
