Dim Sum, literally meaning “to touch your heart,” is served as an innumerable assortment of delicacies, consisting or varieties of dumplings, steamed dishes, and other goodies.

Your tour guide will provide an insider's tour of this vibrant community and share fascinating information about the history, culture and food of the area. In this Chinatown tour (depending on the timing), walk through a Chinese herbal medicine shop, a Chinese place of worship, a Chinese bakery to taste amazing bubble tea, an Asian grocery store, a fish market, a bookstore for a Chinese calligraphy demonstration and more, and end with lunch at a Dim Sum restaurant.
