Get a Taste of Local Flavor
San Francisco has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the United States, and nearly every ethnic cuisine is represented, from Afghan and Indian to Vietnamese. But the city is most famous for its large Chinatown and many Chinese restaurants. With more than 30,000 Chinese occupants, Chinatown is far more than the restaurants and tourist shops many people see at first glance. It's a thriving neighborhood and a great place to enjoy an authentic Dim Sum after a stroll through the neighborhood.
The official currency of the United States is the U.S. Dollar (USD).
