This street is the best street in Beijing to experience the current trending food. It has a really cool vibe and the best thing at the moment is that you can also enjoy the World Cup footie in lots of restaurants along the road!

the street is overwhelming in a positive way; meaning, when you first arrive, it looked like a food heaven with big sign boards, people are happy along the streets as they are getting ready to eat. However, when you walk down the streets trying to...More

The street was doing a facelift as of Dec 2016. I'm guessing the lanterns will be back with the warm weather - but China is apt to surprise!
