Nagasaki's most famous food, called shippoku, is actually an entire meal of various courses with Chinese, European, and Japanese influences. It's a feast generally shared by a group of four or more and includes such dishes as fish soup, sashimi, and fried, boiled, and seasonal delicacies from land and sea. Another Nagasaki specialty is champon, a Chinese noodle usually served in soup with meat, seafood, and vegetables.

Nagasaki's nightlife district centers on a small area south of Hamano-machi known as Shianbashi, which begins just off the streetcar stop of the same name and is easily recognizable by the neon arch that stretches over the entrance of a street called Shianbashi Dori. Shianbashi shimmers with the lights of various drinking establishments and yakitori-ya, which are often the cheapest places to go for a light dinner. Another good hunting ground for restaurants is China Town.
