As winter draws near, we begin to look for ways to combat the cold. The following food streets with their number of delicious snacks and dishes are bound to warm your mind body and soul.

Wu Hill night market in Huixing Road

The name of this night market can be misleading because the 30-year-old Wu Hill night market is neither located at Wu Hill Square nor Wu Hill Street. In fact, the market relocated to Huixing Road 10 years ago, but to memorize its origins, the market keeps its name.

With just 100 RMB, you can feast on a variety of food, such as tangy barbecues, tender steamed vermicelli rolls and fresh mantis shrimps.
