Late Night Food Tour in the Shanghai's French Concession
US$85.00
Overview

Eat like a local on this Shanghai late-night food tour, visiting off-the-path eateries, street barbecues, and a night market. Let your guide handle navigation as you sample more than 20 street-food bites—enough for dinner. Dishes you’ll likely taste: soup dumplings, lamb skewers, and boiled crayfish, washed down by local craft beer. Your guide will also tell you about the food, history, and culture of the former French Concession.

What to Expect
Greet your guide and group at a former French Concession subway station, and stroll towards the Xintiandi area. Your first stop will be a Uyghur restaurant for hand-pulled noodles, followed by a local eatery for the essential “xiaolongbao” soup dumplings.

Continue to Zhaozhou Road street food bazaar, frequented by Anthony Bourdain, and see the border where French-style apartments give way to old stone “shikumen” houses. Try local dishes at three separate eateries as you learn how locals live and eat.

Along the way, cleanse your palate with craft beer and enjoy your guide’s insights into Shanghai’s foodie culture and traditions. Your tour will finish in the former French Concession: Just ask your guide if you need directions to the subway or a taxi.
