This is an area just northeast of downtown with temples, lots of shopping, art performances, food stands, and during the holidays carnival booths. On the food streets there is a constant boom, boom of 三大炮 being made.
This stand is serving the great 羊肉泡馍 (yangroupaomo - lamb soup with bread soaked into it) from Xian and thereabouts. Love it, but didn't try it for a couple of reasons: 1) Have never eaten a good version in Chengdu. 2) The bones in the top of the cage were nearly raw, though had hot broth poured over them constantly...looked like a recipe for an upset stomach.
Deep fried crabs, with hot pepper and cumin.
Sweet fruit flavoured tea.
热凉粉 - Hot cool pea starch. It's called hot/cool because this is usually served cool (凉粉), but this is a hot version. Make sense? The toppings are the usual - soy sauce, vinegar, msg, hot pepper, Sichuan pepper, green onions.
艾蒿饼 - Artemisia cake. Vendor says they are made from flour and millet flour and a wild plant. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
春圈 (or 春卷? chunjuar, anyhow) - Spring rolls. I've never seen the fried kind of spring roll here unless you go into a Taiwanese place. This is a combo plate of spring rolls, with different wrappers - thin crepes (probably from millet flour), rice noodles skin, and doufupi (tofu skin). In the middle are shredded carrots, what I think are lettuce hearts, and cucumber.
