Would have liked longer here to walk around the gardens especially as it was 30degrees and with 88% humidity. We raced around and not all of us saw everything we wanted to.

This is a very local/authentic food market in a historic area with no westerners. My wife and I discovered this while walking on Saturday at around 5pm so that is when I would visit because I am not sure what of its regular hours. There are beautiful buildings, multitudes of street food booths and even people drinking homemade alcohol in clay cups and then breaking the empties by throwing them in a pile of broken rubble. I'm sure there is an interesting history behind it. This is definitely worth a look and is free of charge. See my pictures... Enjoy!

Was told by my cab driver about this place, so decided to have a go at this place.

Feel of the place

Place is too "plastic" for my liking not organic unlike the bustling streets of the Muslim Quarters. Place feels like an amusement park rather than a place with serious street food.

Place is swamped with tour groups.

Food

Food offerings were average. Nothing much to rave about

Payment

As a foreigner , I had only cash on me so it was a hassle for me to open a WeChat Pay account. Had a struggle for a while and realized that they do have a paycard system in the end .

Overall

It's good to visit once just to know what is happening but not really worthwhile to return for another try .

Stumbled here alone one evening after checking into the nearby Hilton. Did not see another westerner and was treated kindly by vendors despite language barriers. Went back two more times. Lovely spot and close to the city wall entry at the East Gate. Food -- lamb skewers, eggplant, yogurt, roujiamo were all fantastic. Great fun to watch the wine bowl smashing and a beautiful place for photos.

Its basically a big outdoor food court with a variety of foods. They are vendors with push carts where you can buy a snack and keep on walking. There are also sit down dining options. You can also get handicrafts along with a few drinking establishments.

2 or 3 block walk from the Xian Hilton (turn left from hotel). It was very very crowded on a Friday night. Was crowded the whole weekend, but eased up on Monday morning (we went back for breakfast). They don't open till 10am, but stay open till way past 10pm. Lots of locals.

A work of caution. The push cart vendors DO NOT take cash. Locals use some sort of mobile pay with their phones. You can go to a on site kiosk and buy a card and use that instead.
