2019-02-11 14:24:25

CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- It’s said that the best time to feel the tenderness of a city is midnight when all the lights are shining in the city. After the lights are put out in business areas, the lights in marketplaces are lit in each street. Everyone enjoys themselves at the food carnival all day long, which makes the city come to life in a flash. Both life stress and career worries have gone with a bite of delicious food.

Chongqing is still bustling at midnight in snack booths where guests chat and drink together late at night. One may feel the most delighted when he hears such word, “Hey, let’s have some midnight snacks!” Midnight snacks cure your daylong bad mood, drawing a perfect full stop for the day.

Jiangyu 24h Restaurant

The Sichuan food restaurant is open all day long. The diner is poor in decoration, but its dishes will never let you down. A big bowl of Poached Spicy Pork Slices costs 15 yuan. It’s the specialty of the diner. Every piece of tender meat is coated with chilli oil, which is a perfect combination of color, aroma and taste.

The diner is crowded with nearby residents and migrant workers in the daytime and becomes the “Midnight Diner” for taxi drivers and take-out deliverymen at night.

Oya Noodle Restaurant

The restaurant is only a few hundred meters away from Xiejiawan Light Rail Station. It’s easy to find it. Since it’s open all day long and near the main street, it becomes the “Midnight Diner” for taxi drivers with no doubt at that time.

Mixed Noodles is the specialty of the diner. All kinds of topping can be mixed together. You may update your view on topping by mixing stewed pork and beef together. Beef is an usual kind of topping, but stewed pork is not.

Chibukui

It’s across from Chongqing Normal University. It attracts so many guests just by its special name. You can hardly find it an old restaurant because of its tidy tables and orderly tableware.
