Default Is there any sort of CHINA TOWN in San Antonio?

I've never seen one, but maybe there's something somewhere nearby.

Yes, there's a few strip centers there and by Bandera/Wurzbach. There is also another small group of Asian markets/stores on the east side of I-35 & Eisenhauer. I have several Asian friends (Thai, Lao, Vietnamese) and they all like to shop over there.

But as far as a "chinatown" or "koreatown" or "little italy" or "little iran" like you might find in other cities, there's never been enough density of recent ethnic immigrants in SA to create sizable communities/enclaves. If you're missing the food, music or other cultural influence of a particular ethnic community, I'd suggest going to the many fairs and festivals that are held around town each weekend... you'll certainly be able to connect with folks who can tell you where some little known markets and other spots are. When I first got back to SA, I was desperately missing all things Indian ... and at the Indian cultural festival I was able to connect with many folks who were happy to share information about the local Indian community.

Question Is there any sort of China Town in SA?

Do any of these stores have Chinese furniture? I am moving back to Mexico and will probably be making a trip to SA after I get there and want some Chinese furniture. It's very hard to find in Mexico. Thank you.

There's a Chinese furniture store in Busseys Flea Market, they can usually order whatever you're looking for if they don't have it in stock (and they're pretty cheap as well): Blank

There is that East Wind Furniture on San Pedro right before it hits 281. I haven't been in there, but saw it the other day driving north on San Pedro.
