I remember talking to Crimsonsky about a curious phenomenon in Canadian cities - namely, the mushrooming "mini-Chinatowns" that spring up all over, in areas not previously thought of as having anything to do with Asia.
Apparently, the same thing was happening to Downtown West - namely, the area between Guy and Atwater.
Frankly, I think calling it "Chinatown West" is going a tad to far: I've visited dozens if not hundreds of time and the fact that it's a new "Chinatown" somehow escaped me. Yes, there are some Asian eateries and cafés, but they are quite far from forming a majority.
Nevertheless, this article makes for an interesting read:
P.S. Blogarazzi - since you LIVE in this new "Chinatown", I'd be particularly interested in hearing your opinion...
