If you have a spare evening in Shanghai, a street food tour is a sure way to get to know some of the city’s best food stops. Sample up to 15 Chinese dishes and beer, all with a guide who knows how to get around quickly, so you can fit the most into your time. Plus, with multiple tour times offers and an easy-to-find meeting place, this food tour is ideal for travelers crunched for time.
What to Expect
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 succulent grilled lamb and naan dishes while sipping a rare regional beer at a local restaurant at the evening’s culinary conclusion. Bid your guide and group farewell at a convenient location near the Jing’An Temple metro stop.

Ours ended near the Jiang Temple but don’t worry your guide will help you get a taxi or point out the metro - which is easy to use - it’s how we got around. Again I highly recommend.
