  • The Chinese are very good. It is a traditional place and you can find out almost everything about oriental food, as well as gifts of different types. The only downside is that you have to be careful because when it is season of celebrations or Saturdays in particular is over loaded and the friends of the alien may be near. Just go carefully and early.
