Eat Like A Local: Shanghai Street Food Night Tour

Eat Like A Local: Shanghai Street Food Night Tour

Meet your guide at a designated spot for a small-group introduction before embarking on your 3-hour walking tour of Shanghai street food. It's an easy way to sample city delicacies while exploring the dynamic streets.

Together, stroll to Shouning Lu, a street market teeming with seafood and desserts such as fruit puddings and purees. For the next hour or so, enjoy sampling local delights such as Shanghai’s famously stewed crawfish, grilled eggplant, and spiced vegetable or lamb skewers. Wash down dessert with a local beer, water or soft drink, but be sure to save room for more!

Walk off your mini-meal as you head past Yuyuan Garden to your second food stop in Shanghai’s Old Town, located just a 15-minute stroll away. Your guide will help you choose your next sampling from night market vendors while you watch sautéed-to-order veggies and stir-fried noodles prepared along with delectable Chinese breads called bings.

Then take a seat at a noodle shop owned by a family of Uighurs, a mostly Muslim minority. After watching specialty noodles get hand-pulled, dig into bowls of beef noodles and knife-cut noodles, as well as other delectable items your small group has collected from the street vendors.

Conclude your tour near Hotel Indigo on the Bund with a full stomach and the knowledge to explore Shanghai’s culinary offerings on your own.
