Shanghai Spicy Food Tour

star-5
Lots of sweat, howls of spicy pleasure and tasty treats are some of the things you'll experience when you dine on China's spicy foods.China has numerous regional cuisines but the spiciest dishes are from Sichuan, Hunan, Chongqing, Guizhou and Yunnan. Food is always the quickest way to get acquainted with a culture, but the food here takes on its very own distinct flavor that can’t be found anywhere else. Small group - makes it more personalized . generous portion - make sure you are full. To make sure you have the best eating experience, we select the best restaurants that I go myself often and DO NOT accept any commissions or kickbacks.
