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 in central Shanghai, and set off to explore the city’s evening food scene.

Stroll to Shouning Lu, a bustling outdoor market of seafood and dessert stalls. Spend an hour or so perusing the stands and sampling wares such as stewed crayfish, grilled eggplant, and vegetable skewers.

Wash them down with a local beer before making your way to a cosmopolitan district favored by Shanghai’s small Muslim population. Here, stop at a popular eatery to taste some juicy grilled lamb and a regional beer.

Next, visit a typical Sichuanese restaurant and treat your taste buds to some signature spicy delights. Sample assorted local favorites, as well as small bites picked up from street food vendors by your guide.

Chat with your fellow food-loving travelers as you eat, and after leaving the restaurant, say farewell at another city-center location, bringing your tour to a close.
