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!

We have been here a couple times while we have been living here. It's a good choice when it's late and you're hungry. The restaurants are pretty typical. Seafood, hotpot and BBQ. Not any western restaurants that I've seen. All in all it's good to...More
