In the mid-19th century, Cantonese immigrants to Philadelphia opened laundries and restaurants in an area in close proximity to Philadelphia's commercial wharves. This led to the start of Philadelphia's Chinatown.
Chinatown features a large number of restaurants featuring East Asian cuisines. 10th Street and Race Street host nearly a dozen different Hong Kong-style bakery cafes. There are restaurants serving Cantonese, Fujianese, Northern, Sichuan, and Taiwanese cuisine including Burmese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese.
