Calle Dolores’s one block is famous as Mexico City’s Chinatown. Number of stores located in that one block sell imported knick-knacks and lacquered Peking duck in restaurants. City’s Zona Rosa neighbourhood located just at a stone's throw is home to numerous blocks that represent Koreatown of Mexico City. It has many Korean restaurants, shops and video rental shops.
