Chinatown's Bloody Angle

Avoid gangster interaction while window-shopping. 

Doyer’s street is dotted with odd storefronts and bizarre Chinatown restaurants. However, the adventure-laden area used to be the battleground for gang warfare of the Tong war, a gang war between the Tong and Leong gangs, started by legendary Chinese gangster Mock Duck.
