Qingdao's seafood and its variations of local Shandong cuisine (lu cai) are all worth trying. Two long blocks east of the Shangri-La Hotel along Xianggang Zhong Lu is Yunxiao Lu, a lively street of bars and restaurants serving all types of Chinese cuisine into the wee hours.

McDonald's and KFC have outlets in both the German Concession and the commercial center around Xianggang Zhong Lu. Coffee aficionados can get a fix at Starbucks on Xianggang Zhong Lu in the Sunshine Plaza (Yangguang Baihuo) or at SPR Coffee in the May 4th Square (north of the monument) on 35 Donghai Xi Lu. If you have your own computer, the SPR location also has Wi-Fi.
