Chinatown, Ottawa

Just been shopping with Mom in Ottawa's Chinatown.

I really like this part of the city. It's grown quite a bit over the years. When I first lived near Chinatown it was little more than the Yang Sheng (still the best spot in town for Chinese food) and a couple of dinky food stores.

Now it's a great mix of all sorts of Asian restaurants, food stores and more. The thing I like is that it's not a showpiece or a tourist spot. It's just a neighbourhood where a lot of Asian people happen to live.

This is the new gate built from contributions from local people. I quite like it.
