Beijing’s hutong alleyways are disappearing fast but a few still maintain their original atmospheric charm. Join your foodie guide on a small-group walking tour of an area untouched by gentrification and discover the wealth of breakfast foods on offer in simple street-side eateries. Try dishes such as dumplings, pancakes, yogurt, steamed buns, mung bean milk, sugared donuts, and tofu pudding. Leave full to the brim, with a new understanding of Chinese food.

Celia was the best. Food was amazing, her explanations were on point, and the tour far exceeded our expectations. It was so good, we went back to the same hutong the next morning for breakfast.
