Underwhelming

There are lots of small restaurants when we went around mid day but we did not see anything too exciting and it was not too busy. On the plus side we did find a good coffee shop and a hat store in the area.

A nice street with different food varieties. Needs to be more clean. Sea food there is the most famous

lively place
May 2018 • Couples
昔の中国を思わせる活気のある雰囲気で歩いてまわると楽しいです。
奥まで行って左に進むと地元民の集まるマーケットもあります。
ここのレストランは衛生的にあまりよくない様に見えます。
試しに臭豆腐を頼んだら加熱していない油に豆腐を入れて、生揚げ状態でした。。
見学するには楽しいが、食べるのは如何かな?と思います。

Very Chinese place. Local people are spitting, shouting on the street.
I liked the lively atmosphere there.
But in terms of food, the restaurants seemed to be unhygienic and not very honest.
I ordered a stinky Tofu at a stall. The lady did not bother frying the Tofu deep enough. Just after one bite, I dumped it in a trash bin.

Short snack and food street
Dec 2017 • Solo
After strolling the Zhongshan Road Pedestrian Street, I decided to visit this street, as it was nearby, just opposite the ferry terminal. The entire street was short, with both sides lined with street vendors, most of them were selling the same stuff - Taiwanese snacks, tea leaves etc. There were also many seafood restaurants too. I took less than 15 mins to walk this street. Not worth a special trip, but ok if you are already nearby.

Should be called Fishy restaurant street not Taiwan Snack Street.
Jul 2017 • Couples
I was excited about visiting Taiwan Snack Street as I thought I would have the opportunity to try a wide variety of Taiwanese snacks especially as it’s a country renowned for unusual food crazes, however this was not the case.

The street is filled with countless fish stalls and restaurants – many of which are near replicas of all the fish restaurants you can find all over Xiamen. There was absolutely no variety and not a wide range of ‘snacks’ to sample either – mainly full dishes were what was on offer on my trip. It is a bright and vibrant street to walk through but not worth making a special trip for.

Street food near Zhongshan
Oct 2017 • Family
The snack street is near Zhongshan road, which has more variety and is slightly longer than the taiwan food street in Zhongshan road. For omelette, be sure to try the one in the photo. There is a nearby market that sells packed snacks for gifts, which are cheaper than the ones at Zhongshan and supermarkets.

Fun eats

This is an open stall street market selling just about anything you want to eat, and it will be cooked right there, for you to your requirements. There was too much good stuff! I finally settled on a large deep fried squid. I probably should have had something smaller, and ate more of other things. It was good, with no intestinal problems.

Bustling market
Apr 2017 • Friends
We visited at around 11am and there was plenty activity even for mid morning. Very nice to walk through and to see a lively market. Lots of food options and some little gift shops selling pearls and more dotted around. Some nice and some not so nice smells while walking through! Like a maze, try not to get lost in all the stalls!

The stalls looked dirty
Oct 2016 • Couples
When my husband and myself were in Xiamen in mid-October, we decided to have a look at this famous Taiwan snack street.

The stalls did sell all kinds of snacks alright, such as peanut soup, xiamen spring rolls, sha cha mian, sandworm jelly, gulangyu fish balls, fried oysters omelet, mian xian hu and Chinese chives bun etc.

Some stalls also sold satay skews: beef, pork and mutton.

We looked at one of the stalls' display and ended up not going inside, as it looked kind of dirty. My husband was afraid that we would end up with the runs after we ate the foods.

Loved it
Sep 2016 • Couples
A fantastic market with a wide range of local produce including fish, horseshoe crab, vegetables and Chinese things. A nice place to visit that was easily reachable by public transport. Just use Apple Maps to find out about the busstops and routes to get there. Do have small change for the bus ride. The market closes around 10PM.
