TOUR PREVIEW

TASTE CHINA’S BEST REGIONAL CUISINES – ALL IN ONE NIGHT!

From the local sweet & sour flavors to spicy Sichuan sauces from China’s far southwest, you’ll explore the best Chinese food Shanghai has to offer.

DINE AT UNIQUE NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANTS​

Freshly made soymilk, local donuts, potstickers, the Chinese crepe that is becoming a sensation all over the world… you’ll watch your food being made before your eyes – then sit down to sample it when it is at its freshest.

TRY THE WORLD’S MOST CONSUMED LIQUOR

Wash it all down with baijiu – you’ve never had anything quite like this before. Plus get sauced on the local beers and the region’s famous yellow wine with your new foodie friends.

*Each tour has 4-5 rotating seated stops offering a tasting of 10+ dishes.

DIETARY RESTRICTIONS

Vegetarians and Pescetarians are welcome, but will have to skip out on several dishes. We will make substitutions where possible, but please note that we cannot substitute all dishes, so the selection of dishes will not be as large as the selection for omnivores. If you’d like to book a private vegetarian-only version of this tour, please contact us

*Please note on some tours we may stop for rabbit head, a local delicacy that is eaten with your hands. You can choose to opt out.

Vegans are also welcome, but there will be limited options. If you’d like to book a private vegetarian-only version of this tour, please contact us.

*Please note on some tours we may stop for rabbit head, a local delicacy that is eaten with your hands. You can choose to opt out.

If the diner is ok with soy sauce, Zhenjiang vinegar and oyster sauce (we understand people with an intolerance can usually stomach these, but people suffering from celiac disease cannot), then the Night Eats tour will have some options, but choices will be limited. It’s very difficult in general to find completely gluten-free dining in China. Here’s a blog post we’ve written about eating gluten free in China.

These allergies have not been a problem in the past, however we cannot guarantee that the utensils and other cooking tools used in the kitchen to prepare our food tour dishes have not touched any shellfish/nut ingredients. Please bring your epi pen or other meds to the tour if you choose to participate.

What Our Guests Say

The tour guides, Leigh and Chang, introduced everyone to each other and were happily guiding us through all the spots on the itinerary. Their energy and history knowledge instantly earned our trust and throughout the night the guests were getting more excited and engaged. Leigh and Chang didn’t just teach us about the food and its origins, but also about Shanghai's roots and development.

My husband and two teenage kids joined Ashley on an evening tour - what a fun night! Ashley took us to a neighborhood we wouldn't have explored on our own and we tried all sorts of delicious foods that we haven't ever tried. Ashley and the other guide were young, fun and very informed. We really enjoyed getting to share this experience with lots of other travelers from around the world. Would definitely recommend this tour!
