This was a really good tour - we explored the area near Jingan Temple. The first stop was for noodles and tofu in a vegetarian restaurant - delicious. Then a walk to a local food shop where our guide Mai pointed out local foods and on the way out of the shop we tried mooncake - my favourite - a hot light pastry enclosing minced pork which was delicious.
Next a walk to a local market to inspect fish and meats, and vegetables and fruit upstairs. Mai answered all our questions and explained what was special. Next stop for street food - the locals lined up at is stall selling deep fred tofu and sticky rice. Then a little further after picking up some green tea, a stop at a local restaurant for dumplings. All the food was terrific - we really enjoyed this tour and felt that we understood a little more about the food in Shanghai. Mai took great care of us. Highly recommended.
Our guide has such enthusiasm about shanghai and its culture. She not only shared the Shanghainese culinary style but also other beautiful places in china. I totally love this tour and thank you Annie!
Our time spent with Joyce, who was most pleasant and articulate, was very enjoyable. We especially appreciated the opportunity to visit shops and markets with a Chinese person, allowing us to linger and communicate with the merchants in a leisurely way, and without feeling awkward. We especially enjoyed the public market and the "all purpose" store. We did not find the last restaurant on the tour to be particularly interesting. My wife and I were very glad we signed up for the tour, and we have fond memories of it. Thanks!
