When the night falls, the assortment of tasty snacks from both northern and southern China, plus the bustling crowds and rhythmical huckstering is another worthy attraction in Beijing.
Gui Street
Most restaurants in the street are open twenty-four seven. If you are a night owl, Gui Street in Dongzhi Gate, is a good place to spend the boundless night. From 2 am is usually the busiest time on this street, with the specialty being Spicy Lobster. Inside the ancient courtyard houses, under the grapevines, sitting in the old chairs and appreciating the early photos are all agreeable, but most important are the succulent dishes.
