Huángdǎo Market

Street Food in Qingdao

In the heart of Old Town, this long-standing, frenetic street market is chock-a-block with vendors selling (depending on the time of day) squirming seafood, fried chicken, pancakes, fruit, soy milk…it’s all cheap, so just stop when something catches your fancy. Nearby Zhifu Lu has sit-down, curbside joints (look for a ‘加功' – jiā gōng – sign) that will prepare whatever seafood you bring them for ¥5.
