Many of the restaurants here are somewhat up-market, but it is also possible to find cheaper food, especially at the hotels. The architecture, especially some of the fine wrought-iron verandahs, makes this an area worth walking through.

Central Market 
In the south-west of the city area, the Central Market lies between Grote Street and Gouger Street. It contains all types of stalls, especially food. Nearby can be found an interesting variety of eating establishments.

Chinatown is in tthe Central Market district and is rocognisable by its Pogoda roofs and red lanterns. There are an array of authentic asian resturants, grocery stores, retailers and a food plaza here. It’s not all Chinese either, there are also Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian and Japanese restaurants and stores.
