Yesterday while heading up to get my International Driving Permit, I stopped by the Chinese market and bubble tea place in Chinatown – more formally known as Bellaire, Houston. It’s really an “Asiatown” as half of it is mostly Vietnamese and the other half Chinese with a few Koreans, but this plaza is probably 100% Chinese – or close to it.
Anyway, I took these shots knowing that it doesn’t look like a “real city.” It’s all in a plaza – but the plaza itself is pretty nice and has interesting shops and restaurants. I’m a big fan of Star Snow Ice, which serves mostly Taiwanese/Chinese food with REALLY good tapioca milk tea.
Off to the photos. Remember to check them on my Flickr for full-sized versions. If you are running Chrome on Flickr, you might have to refresh the dark-background photo to see the selection to get all sizes – I think they’re still working out bugs.
