What to Expect

Enjoy over 15 of the best traditional Shanghainese dishes on Yunnan Road, the old border between the former French Concession and Shanghai residential areas, on this 3-hour tour. You get to see for yourself if Shanghai’s iconic soup dumplings or “Xiao Long Bao” live up to the hype. We’ll also visit the famous Yunnan Road where we’ll stop at three different traditional restaurants as well as a dessert shop. If you are tired (or too full!) , we can sit down at a famous tea house to drink Longjing green tea or Fujian black tea for a short break. This tour is all local spots, so you’ll get to see how the Shanghaineses catch up with their friends in the their local language, which is actually quite a bit different than Mandarin. You will start your tour in the Xintiandi area to taste some of the best soup dumplings in Shanghai. There, we’ll watch the chefs fill the dumpling skins up with, juicy meat filling and prep them for their steam bath. During this tour, you will discover the mix of food culture through many of Shanghai’s classic dishes, like parched chicken, red-braised pork, scallion oil noodles, roasted duck, candied lotus rice, moon cakes, spring rolls etc. Between food stops, you will be offered some Longjing green tea or Fujian black tea while your guide will share more insights and interesting stories about Shanghai.
