It's really fun. Went there after dinner at mall to eat dessert (strawberry caramel skrewer). Vendors offer us snake and sea horse, and offer chinese octopus and squid :)

This place is right in the centre of the city. The market is very near the Hilton Hotel Wangfujing. I have heard different stories about the opening and closing times of this street food market, but I was led to believe it is open from 4pm – 9.30pm. I went there around 7pm on a Friday night. There must have... More

If you are a tourist you need to come and have a look but don't come thinking you will be able to gorge yourself. It is more a novelty area then a dining area and a lot of tourists were taking more photo's then buying food. I bought a cheap Heineken beer (buy the cans) and watched all the activity... More

This is the place to come see exotic foods such as every known bug on a skewer such as scorpions, starfish, frogs, etc. My personal vice is the skewered fruits in caramelized sugar coating amazing how baby tomatoes can taste so good with sugar added. By the way there are more conventional foods here.

a pure tourist trap with expensive and bad food. Go out and eat to original Chinese instead of this crap. It can be fun to watch this horror show but i would not recommend people buying this crap.

It's just a single stretch of road. The items were pretty interesting and exotic as well. But soon, one will notice that the same item gets repeated as you walk along the night market. No idea why there are so many stalls that actually sells the same stuffs. Actually wanted to try the pigs intestines, but the seller was pushing... More

After a walk at Wangfujing Street, I went to the night food street and tasted some Toufu,Baodu, BBQ, etc. I like all kinds of snacks at the open market.

I am never brave to try "street food" while traveling. I like to enjoy my trip and not spend it in the bathroom! There was a lot to see here, along with interesting smell. I mostly had fun watching ppl eat and snapping pictures of all the "food on a stick"! Its def a feast for the eyes!

Pretty interesting place with many different types of food. It was very very crowded when we went. It is a place to try out many different types of food. Becareful of your wallet/valuables since very crowded and somewhat hectic environment.
