Chinatown


Real, old country Chinese food is not so hard to find here in Reykjavík. Sjanghæ is just one of a number of Asian food restaurants in downtown, most located within a few hundred yards of each other on Laugavegur, an area I've dubbed Chinatown.

Wow... the ideas of Chinatown and Iceland have never come together in my mind until now... thanks for a random new thought!

It is not stunning for me, because there are many spots in almost every country, where you can get Asian foods.

So how's the food? What region: is it Szechuanese, Cantonese, etc. What did you order? Where did the owners come from?

I'm guessing the Chinese immigrants speak some Icelandic. Or do they use English? BTW, how hard is it to use English in Iceland?

I'd be interested to know more about the Chinese community in Iceland. That goes double for the Taiwanese community.

Have you ever found a durian there?
