TOUR PREVIEW

START YOUR MORNING OFF RIGHT

Stroll through one of the former French Concession’s most energetic parks – and watch the retirees practicing tai qi, water calligraphy, line dancing and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

WATCH STREET FOOD MADE TO ORDER

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.

SEE NOODLES PULLED BY HAND

It’s a culinary magic trick that will have you reaching for your phone. Watch as a block of dough is transformed into a bowl of delicious noodles – all in less than one minute.

EXPLORE A LOCAL WET MARKET

These bustling markets are where locals do their grocery shopping. Admire heaps of lily bulbs and bamboo shoots, see more varieties of tofu than you ever knew existed and find out why they call it a “wet” market in the teeming seafood section.

SLURP ON SHANGHAI’S FAMOUS SOUP DUMPLINGS

Find out how chefs get the delicious broth inside soup dumplings, the region’s most famous dish – and learn how to eat them without burning your tongue!

Vegans will have a more limited selection, but we are able to make some substitutions + add in more veggies at one stop.

We are not able to make substitutions for those with gluten free restrictions and/or celiacs disease as soy sauce is very prevalent in our tour stops.

"UnTour’s street eats breakfast tour starts with a tasting of three of Shanghai’s four most popular breakfast foods, collectively known as the “four heavenly kings”. There are crispy, oily, fried youtiao doughnuts, which are dipped into a freshly made sweetened soy milk that also helps wash down a dense cifantuan rice ball."

Spent 3 hours enjoying the best authentic Chinese food - breakfast, lunch, brunch! Joseph was a great host. Not only did we have all the food we could eat but we walked the streets and experienced Shanghai with those living here every day. Great food, great company, a great day!! 5 stars.
