Dongmen Food Street

Dongmen Food Street

If you haven’t been to Shenzhen, or you simply do not know where it is, Dong Men(东门, which literally translates into East Gate,) is a large labyrinth of shops, salons, bars, and restaurants in the heart of Luohu. It is ridiculously large – if you have never been there before you can certainly count on getting lost. It took me almost two years to figure the place out.

It is loud and exceptionally dirty in areas – it is filled with bright lights, billiards halls, shop clerks who are shouting slogans at you, and smells that you sometimes can’t place. Dong Men is where you want to go to buy ridiculous souvenirs for people at home, cheap shoes or handbags, or if you just want to grab some street food on the go.

At night, Dong Men turns into a different place all together. It’s streets, once bustling with busy shoppers, are now packed with mobile street food carts. Fruit, baozi, chuanr, tofu, fish – you name it, you can buy it on the streets of Dong Men after seven at night. But the real Dong Men street food market is not where all of the shops are. No, no, the real street food market is across the street, down an alleyway, hidden away from the world behind tall buildings and barbecue smoke. In this market you will find stalls, equipped with tables, where you can eat until you are full of barbecue lamb, Taiwan pancakes, and beer.No matter what you are in the mood for, Dong Men has it. Barbecue, Taiwan pancakes, baozi, jiaozi, soup, seafood, fruit, deep fried breads, anything you can possibly imagine is on this street. It’s fantastic. No – look at me. It really is.
