Chinatown
Chinese culture is well represented in Montreal, so Montreal’s chinese community has been established for many years. Immigrants came over initially to build the railway line towards the west and the community has grown ever since. Chinatown located just below Rene Levesque and centered on St. Laurent street. There is a hospital, many restaurants, and quite a few grocery stores and shops selling imported goods. Of course there are chinese supermarkets, and it’s very chinese with very little written skills in French, but a great variety of food.
