The title speaks for itself. For anyone interested in trying local food where tourists don't go, then this is the place for you. Obviously a tour guide that speaks your language is required as no one will speak English (or likely any other language aside...More

If I didn’t remember wrong, the museum and the exhibitions normally close at 21:30, but the food streets and some shops may close later.
