Late Night Food Tour in the Shanghai's French Concession

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Start your 3-hour late night food adventure from the Xintiandi area to the backstreets of former French Concession at 8:30pm. Taste over 20 local delicacies along the Hefei Road to the Zhaozhou Road where you can only discover in the late night since Shanghai has been cracking down most of the street vendors. Other than fun street food eating and local craft beer drinking, you will also learn about the history and culture of dynamic Shanghai city through your knowledgeable guide. All food tasting items can add up to more than enough for a full meal.
  • Eat your way through the former French Concession after dark
  • Taste over 20 local street foods—enough for dinner—and savor craft beer
  • Follow in the footsteps of Anthony Bourdain with a local guide
  • Get a new perspective on Shanghai’s history, heritage, and culture
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.

By far the highlight of our trip to Shanghai. Lu brought us to a half dozen different local places, none of which we ever would have been able to find or experience on our own, not speaking Mandarin. Jian-bings to start. Ice cream. Spicy pork...More

Yes. No fish at all and just few sea food. You will have other options when sea food comes.

Doubt it. The language problem is severe!! Stick to meat and fish only. Don’t trust in the ability of your guide to be able to ensure it is gluten free. Remember soya sauce is not necessarily gluten free
