Beijing Hutong Breakfast Food Tour
Beijing is a great place to sample typical Chinese cuisine, but most visitors only eat in the main tourist areas. This 3-hour small-group tasting tour will take you to Beijing’s atmospheric Hutong neighborhoods for a delicious breakfast, including traditional treats such as baozi (steamed buns), jianbing (crepes), silken tofu pudding, and almond ice cream.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group of up to 8 people by Yonghegong Metro station in time for an 8am departure. Set out on a walking tour of some of the city’s oldest Hutong neighborhoods, stopping at local cafés, street food stalls, and artisan shops to tuck into traditional breakfast dishes side-by-side with the locals.

Enjoy an authentic introduction to Chinese cuisine as you sample a huge variety of foods, starting with delicious silken tofu pudding, topped with savory toppings such as chive flowers. Next, tuck into brown sugar donuts from a halal stall, then taste breakfast specialties such as baozi (steamed buns), deep-fried crullers, and sweet soymilk at another popular street food stall. Before you move on, try a glass of fermented mung bean milk, a Beijing elixir that elderly locals swear by, and some jarred Beijing yoghurt that can only be found in the capital.

Sip a cup of coffee as you watch your jianbing (Chinese crepes) being made, then take a shot of something stronger as you visit a Huangjiu (Chinese brandy) shop for a tasting. Finish your breakfast banquet with a bowl of sweet almond tofu or tea-flavored ice cream, depending on the season.

At the end of your tour, your guide can help you find your way back to your hotel.

Eat like a Beijinger

This was a great trip to not only try many different types of local breakfast foods but also walk a little off the beaten path. Bring your willingness to try many different types of foods and your appetite.
