One of our favorite things about eating in Shanghai is access to authentic food from all over the country. Thanks to its pull as China’s financial capital, Shanghai attracts millions of migrants who bring their local culinary traditions and ingredients along with their hope of striking it rich in this wonderful city. On this three-hour Shanghai Night Eats route, we explore the best local and regional cuisine the city has to offer. Get ready for Shanghai’s most delicious food tour!
We’ll start the night by sampling the world’s oldest “sandwich”, a combination of braised pork belly and freshly-baked pita that has been perfected by Xi’an chefs over 2,000 years, then taste southern China’s impressive roast meats and fried noodle dishes. We’ll also sample specialty seafood and bamboo dishes from the “Land of Fish & Rice”, Shanghai’s surrounding region, and get our tastebuds tingling with Sichuan’s famous mouthnumbing peppercorn. We’ll finish our tour with the cumin-laced flavors of the farflung Western province of Xinjiang and a dessert that is a Shanghainese spin on a French pastry. And we’ll wash it all down with locals beers and spirits, huangjiu and baijiu. You’ve never had anything quite like this before!
