Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, Queensland
There’s just so much I enjoy about visiting China town. Any China town in fact. I’ve wandered all over China town in San Francisco and in New York City, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and when we eventually take off on our European Food Trek we’ll visit China town where ever we end up. And one day we’ll even visit China. In China Town I just love the vibe and the buzz that surrounds the market places and vendors stores that have an exotic atmosphere no matter what time of day it is.
Being a Queensland resident, China town in Fortitude Valley Brisbane is some where we love to visit for our fix of wonderful Asian food. The Brisbane China town is probably the smallest of the three major cities Chinese precincts but it has a lot to offer. There are a number of Asian grocery stores that are great fun to wander around and browse the many imported exotic goods that you don’t see in main stream supermarkets, from bottled coconut juice, canned abalone, and salted plum confection to medicinal teas and heaps of chilli products. The list goes on and on and the prices are surprisingly reasonable as well. Most weekends you will find a street market offering fashion items as well as interesting art and many unusual items. They have live music and entertainment and the atmosphere is a lot of fun and you can grab a bargain
There are heaps of good places to eat at China town and it’s a great place to just explore and discover for yourself. So next time you visit Brisbane, don’t forget to drop into the “Valley” and check out the wonders of China town.
