It was around Christmas week in Melbourne so after 9pm only places that still remain opened were in Chinatown. We found a lot of interesting places to eat and drink around the 3 block area. Chinatown was quite clean compared to other cities Chinatowns and food selections were good.
Oh my god I LOVE China Town. Not for its shopping, because that really is a bit meh in my opinion, there are far better places to go. But I love it for the food. There is such an exotic array of restaurants to go to that pretty much serve every Chinese dish imaginable! If you love (or even like) Chinese food, you need to go to China Town.
The original Chinese population came to Victoria in the mid-1800s chasing the promise of riches during Australia’s gold rush era. Today, a large population of Chinese remain in Melbourne and the city has arguably one of the best Chinatowns in the country. During the year, there are many traditional festivals and activities in this part of town, making it a vibrant place to explore. And with the restaurants in the area serving up delicious food, this is a location not to be missed.
Tons of awesome restaurants, and a solid selection of street art.
Chinatown is a small section in the middle of the city. This is a great area, the food is cheap and fast and ambience lively. Recommended venues include Supper Inn, Kum Den and Post Deng Cafe. Vintage Cellars is handily located for your BYO needs. After dinner head to Charlton's trashy karaoke.
