Street Food in Qingdao

Off Zhongshan Lu, an archway with a plaster motif ‘1902’ leads to a vast warren of food stalls and the Jiāngníng Assembly Hall (江宁会馆; Jiāngníng Huìguǎn), a long-time draw for renowned performers that still puts on musical acts. The whole place is rather done up, but at least that means prices are labelled and eateries have picture menus. Watch out for some less-than-fresh offerings.
