The city’s original Chinatown was settled on Commissioner Street in the early 20th century but with the flight from the city of big business post-1994 the area lost the fight against urban degeneration, crime and decay. Still some stalwarts remain and today you can visit Commissioner Street in Ferreirasdorp for Chinese food at the longest surviving Chinese restaurant in the city, Swallow’s Inn. Nearby is the fantastic supermarket Sui Hing Hong, selling everything from fireworks to sex toys, crockery to condiments and any ingredients you’ll need to cook up your own “authentic” Chinese meal.
