Interesting foods

PiChai Yuan is a street market and has lots of little souveniers, but the best part is the food. Try the octopus or squid!

Just a couple of small alleyways teeming with colourful street stalls selling weird and wonderful foodstuffs. The speciality seemed to be squid on a stick. It was covered in a sweet spicy sauce and was delicious. We passed on the scorpions and insects though and opted for some delicious steamed buns instead. Well worth a visit!

Most food stalls offer the same stuff. I guess the most interesting one was the one with scorpions and kinds of larvae or what ever those things were. People tend to crowd around that stall you probably won't miss it. We had lunch in one of those inner court yard restaurant (Jiang Ning Hui Guan 江宁会馆)which was quite good. There... More

Wonderful hideaway of delicious street snack foods and cool old buildings. Also located in the old German part of Qingdao so many other attractions not far away. Definitely worth an afternoon.

And it is a great atmosphere sitting outside enjoying the food with fresh... More

If you want to try some local snacks / specialties then this is a good place to do it. Some opera / shows also held at lunch and dinner time. Good place to just wander down the little alleys and have a nosey around. Good to end up for lunch here after a morning walking around the Badaguan area and... More

Pichai Yuan (Pichai Courtyard) 劈柴院 is a treasure cove of old Chinese culture. It is located at Zhongshan Lu, Shinan District, Qingdao (青岛市市南区中山路), one km northeast of Qingdao Railroad Station, in old town. Here you can sample some of the more unusual foods, do a little shopping of very memorable souvenirs, enjoy tea served from a very long beaked water... More
