This is a really nice area to walk to get a sense of the city. Tasty food at very good prices and lots to take photos of. We had a really good time strolling around both day and night. There is a nice variety of stuff to try as well - I loved the tofu, my man loved the octopus... More

I was amazed how many things you can eat there. I have to admit, it was still something Chinese that was my favourite: Noodles in a hot chilli sauce, with peanuts and spring onions.

Beiyuanmen Street leads off North from the Drum Tower, and is the main street where local Muslim food specialities can be found for sale as street food. The most common dishes include fried tofu with chilli, squid on skewers, quails eggs, and warm sweetened yellow rice. There are a few places selling lamb with Chinese pita bread, and some hammering... More

A street well worth the visit I came through here every day that I was in Xian. The foods, the sites, so much to see and do. I will definitely be putting it back on my list of places to visit when I next return to Xian

There are many stands selling hand pulled candy, meat and seafood on a stick and souvenirs. The street is wider than the alleys of the Muslim Quarters - which this is perpendicular to. It's a great place to get a feel for the city.

As a Muslim, I really appreciate and enjoy variety of food. Other place confirm they already sell pigs. Alhamdulillah. Local can improve much on food hygiene.

This is a long street fill with handicraft shops and food stalls. It is quite easy to find by just walking right behind the Drum Tower. As you walk in, there will be so much to take in, street vendors shouting their wares, electric bikes zooming in and out (watch out), smells of food with various spices. Part of the... More

So many food choices it was hard to know where to begin. I walked up the street looking at all the BBQ sticks, noodles, dim sum, soup, noodles, potatoes and other items I didn't know what they were. everything I had was delicious and always between ¥5-10. Try lots of different things - an ideal way to eat.
