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

To track down the best street food spots, it takes a local. Like your local guide on this Shanghai late night food tour, who’ll take you to off-the-path eateries, street barbecues, and a night market. Taste over 20 Shanghai street foods—enough for dinner—and savor local craft beer as you learn 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 Shanghaiites 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.

Jim was both fun and knowledgeable. He took us places where I would not think to go and the food was always great. Last stop was a noodle place down an alley in a basement. It looked scarey until I saw Anthony Bourdain's picture. (Season...More
