The largest Chinatown outside of Asia has an array of side streets with eateries, tea shops and a haven for Asian produce. Grant Avenue is the most popular tourist section, lined with gift shops. However Stockton Street is absolutely authentic, often with very little English language spoken, and is where locals buy Asian produce from herbs to a mind-boggling variety of vegetables and seafood. The famous Dragon Gate on Bush Street was a gift from Taiwan in 1969, a beautiful structure of koi fish, stone lions and the dragon itself. Welcoming all to Chinatown! At 857 Washington Street is the Great China Herb Company, an absolute must-see. There are also several tea tasting houses to help digest all the delectable and irresistible snacks you will inevitably be enjoying. 743 Washington Street was formerly the Bank of Canton, then became the old Telephone Exchange where women operators knew the name and number of every resident in Chinatown. Portsmouth Square lies between Washington, Kearney and Clay Streets,. This is where the very first houses of San Francisco where built by Captain Montgomery in 1846.
