What You Can Expect

Xi'an Gourmet Walking Tour at Night

Cold Noodles in Peanut Sauce

A trip to any country is never complete without tasting authentic local delicacies. On this night walking tour of Xi’an, start at the Bell Tower, an important symbol for the city and one of the grandest of its kind in China. Learn about the interesting legends surrounding the tower's development from your expert guide before starting your gourmet tour.

The first stop is Fanji Restaurant, popular for its cheap but delicious rou jia mo, grilled bread stuffed with minced pork. Wash it down with rice wine before sauntering past the Drum Tower and on to Muslim Street, the center of a large Chinese-Muslim community. Here, you will be greeted by a mixture of pleasant aromas and colorful sights from street vendors. Get a bottle of plum juice from any of the stands and enjoy its delicate taste as you observe how locals make walnut and peanut candy on Xiyang Shi Street.

Next, visit Jia San Restaurant, where you can enjoy guantang baozi. Be careful when eating these steamed buns as they are filled with hot, flavorful gravy! After you’ve had your fill, chow down on delicious barbecue at another vendor down the street. Your many BBQ options include lamb, beef or fish. Pair it with bingfeng, Xi’an’s version of a soda that tastes like orange juice.

Shredded pancake and sesame fillets will be waiting for you at another restaurant. Relax and enjoy this delectable dish at your own leisure, and don’t forget to save room for dessert! Walk down Muslim Street and visit a popular vendor for a mouthwatering persimmon pancake -- the long lines let you know it’s good!

Your friendly and informative guide will bring you to the best places offering the best local food, and will give you a thorough rundown of the dishes you try and places you see. This 3-hour gourmet tour will give you a complete and satisfying experience of Xi’an cuisine!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

A great way to try the street food and restaurants of Xian and the Muslim area. We met our Tour guide which spoke great English and explained and went out of her way to make sure we sampled all the different foods. We let her pick and order menu items so that we could try everything and everything we tryed was great. Would not of gone to the area with out taking this tour and would of been disappointed if we had not taken the tour. We could of spent more time just walking around but got so filled up on food.

Excellent tour! I wanted to experience a foodie tour while in Xi'an, and Viator delivered. My guide, Michelle, was friendly, knowledgeable, and organized. She suggested great food stalls and took care of everything. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to experience a great food tour in Xi'an!
