Follow your local guide as you sample Shanghai’s selection of pulled noodles, breakfast pancakes and its famous ‘xiaolongbao’ (soup dumplings). Along the way you’ll also have a chance to check out tai chi practitioners and water calligraphers in Xiangyang Park, and wander an array of street stalls and a wet market, where you’ll see fresh Chinese dishes prepared before your eyes. This small-group food excursion, limited to just 8 guests, is also great for kids.
What to Expect
Immerse yourself in the amazing culinary culture of Shanghai during this small-group food tour to taste some of the city’s top food specialties. Whether you’re a full-on foodie or simply looking for a unique way to experience Chinese culture, this kid-friendly food tour is a great option.

Meet your food guide in the morning at Xiangyang Park, taking a half hour to investigate this picturesque green space before digging into your food crawl. Observe tai chi masters and water calligraphers going about their daily rituals, learning about these fascinating practices from your guide.

Then get ready to start your food adventure. Head to your first street stall nearby, taking a moment to absorb the sounds and smells as a mouth-watering Chinese dish is prepared and served right out of the wok. You’ll have a chance to enjoy a selection of savory breakfast pancakes, fried dumplings and fresh-pulled noodles during your exploration.

Continue next to a nearby wet market, where you’ll stroll among vendors hawking a variety of fresh produce, fish and meat. Make sure to stay hungry, because your next stop will offer a chance to sample xiaolongbao, a famous style of Shanghai dumpling filled with soup. Watch these mouth-watering morsels sizzle in the pan before grabbing one, carefully piercing its skin,  and popping it into your mouth, savoring the piping-hot broth and tasty fillings inside.

Finish your food excursion with a sweet treat, stopping for an egg tart dessert at a local vendor. Enjoy the creamy egg custard center surrounded by flaky pastry crust, your stomach now feeling satisfied after a few hours worth of tasty food discoveries. Leave your group at the Shanxi Lu Metro stop.
