The Mississauga Chinese Centre is one of the suburban Chinatowns in Toronto. It is located on Dundas Street near Tomken Road. One of the things you will immediately notice when you come here is the traditional Chinese architecture and replicas of works in China. For example, you can see a replica of the Nine Dragon Wall as found in Beihai Park in Beijing. There are a handful of gift shops here and some nice Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants. If you are staying in a hotel in Mississauga, you can easily make a quick stop here.
Toronto has several large Chinatowns (or Chinese communities) in its suburbs accessible by public transportation. The Chinatown in downtown Toronto at Spadina and Dundas West is usually the one that is advertised in visitor guides and tour books. But in places immediately outside the city like in Markham, Mississauga, and Richmond Hill, you can find surprisingly large Chinese shopping malls and plazas. We visited an area in Markham at the intersection of Steeles and Kennedy. There are three malls located here: Pacific Mall, Market Village Mall, and Splendid China Tower. The Pacific Mall claims to be the largest indoor Asian mall in North America. We went there and felt like we were in a mall in China. You can of course find very authentic Chinese food there; there are literally hundreds of dishes on the menus to choose from. So if you have a few hours to spare or are trying to decide where to have lunch or dinner, it is not a bad idea to visit one of these suburban Chinatowns.
Don't forget to visit Toronto's Chinatown, which is one of the largest in North America. There are many Chinese supermarkets, small shops and places for culinary experiences. The best day for a visit seems to be Saturday, as a Chinese street market takes place on Saturdays and the streets are packed with Asian people.
Toronto's Chinatown is located in the area around Spadina Ave and Dundas street.
Take a trip down chinatown and feel like your really in China. Chinatown offers great restarurants and fresh fruit.
There are many restaurants around the district and its easy to get there via subway.
Take the subway to Queen street and get off and take the tram all the way to Spadina.
Enjoy great Chinese food and no worries, don't need to speak Chinese. Ask the locals where you the best place to eat.
