El Barrio Chino

Believe it or not, not all Mexicans are “Mexican”.  Lebanese, Chinese, Jewish, Basque, Argentinian, and Korean immigrants, among numerous others, have all made noticeable impacts on contemporary Mexico City.

Historically, the Chinese population centered on Calle Dolores in the central city; these days it is more of a tourist strip as Chinese-Mexicans have spread throughout the city.
