There have recently been more Korean chains moving into Chinatown.
It's been a very good fit for our community. Korean chains like The Face Shop, Nature Republic, The Yeon, Cafe Bene have popped up in the last few years. Soon Tous Le Jours will be opening on Division street. Chinese love spa products and bakeries! These Korean brands are innovative and appeal to a similar Asian palette. Priced higher than the normal Chinese goods, but still remain an affordable luxury.
Cafe Bene and Tous Le Jours will offer an alternative to the hustle and bustle of the Tai Pan/Fay Dah type of bakery. Both equally delicious. One more for everyday eating on the go while the other offers more lounge experience.
I highly recommend trying Korean face masks! Love the green tea ones!
