Itinerary
Greet your guide at a central, pre-arranged location and embark upon your exploration of Shanghai’s diverse food scene. Stroll through a residential area brimming with restaurants that are popular with locals, but hard to find on your own, including a family-run restaurant that has been in business for decades. 

At each stop you’ll sample several dishes that highlight the best of the region’s flavors, while sipping on amazing local beers, yellow wine & spirits. As you walk, you’ll chat with new foodie friends, sip drinks, digest and learn about the area’s history and architecture. 

Taste Shanghai's most famous dish, xiaolongbao (soup dumplings), at a local snack shop that has been serving up classics for decades at the evening’s culinary conclusion. Bid your guide and group farewell at a convenient location near the Jiangsu Rd metro stop.
