A visit to Chinatown wouldn't be complete without a visit to the historic Won Kow Restaurant. The business was established in 1927, making it Chinatown's oldest Chinese restaurant. Manager Dave Hoy attributes the restaurant's longevity to tourists and a dedicated customer base of local residents. "It's not unusual for us to serve people who have been customers for decades," Hoy says. "Just last week, there was a gentleman here who has been coming since the 1930s. That's pretty amazing." The restaurant is located on the second floor of the building and can be reached only by climbing a set of steep stairs. The atmosphere is pleasant and dress can be casual or semi-formal. Per-person meal prices are generally $10 or more.
