Zhōngwèi Shāngchéng Night Market information
A Dante’s Inferno of flaming woks and grills, the night market is made up of countless stalls in the alleys running left off Xinglong Nanjie (which is lined with Chinese-style bars). There are tonnes of cheap eats. Two favourites to check out are ròujiāmó (肉夹馍; fried pork or beef stuffed in bread, sometimes with green peppers and cumin) and shāguō (砂锅; mini hotpot), as well as the ever-present pulled noodles (拉面; lāmiàn ).
