There’s no better way to experience the bustling streets of Shanghai than by foot, so we’ve ditched our tuktuks and created Shanghai’s most authentic culinary experience! We seriously get off the beaten path to discover neighborhoods and restaurants that you would never find on your own all while enjoying the best food shoulder to shoulder with locals. We only eat food local to Shanghai, and we explore neighborhoods and communities that have been around as long as the city. Experience the best quality and flavors that you can get in Shanghai with us!

This walking tour will take you through small streets and old communities while visiting over 6 eateries & street stalls and trying at least 10 authentic dishes. Enjoy vegetarian noodles in a temple, watch Shanghai’s famous fried potstickers & dumplings prepared fresh, visit a local wet market, sip some homemade herbal alcohol, plus a lot more as you feel like a local in this bustling area. This is the real Shanghai!

You will meet your guide at an easy-to-find central location (detailed directions will be provided in your confirmation sent immediately after booking) then explore the quaint neighborhoods and streets of Old-Shanghai by foot. We only try the best local food in the city at places where only locals go that are truly off the beaten path. You won’t see any other tourists, these are family-run eateries that you can’t find on your own. This tour visits an old part of Shanghai away from the downtown and French Concession areas. This is the real Shanghai!

While visiting over 5 food stops, you will get to learn about the families that have been making their specialties for generations. You’ll learn about the foods that locals love and why they became so popular as each dish, restaurant and neighborhood is explained by your guide.

Start by visiting a noodle shop connected to a temple that specialize in serving tasty, vegetarian noodles for Buddhists. Then walk through pedestrian streets and lanes that come alive with fresh, handmade (and safe) street food only served during the morning. Watch China’s most popular breakfast items prepared before eating them including fried beef pancakes, jianbing (savory Chinese crepes), and youtiao (Chinese doughnut sticks). Take a seat and watch Shanghai’s famous pot-stickers and dumplings fried in giant pans and sip on local beverages like fresh soy milk and homemade herbal alcohol plus a few surprises. Visit a local wet market to see locals bargaining and buying fresh produce, meat and seafood and see what’s in season. Walk through some of Shanghai’s oldest residential communities to see how locals live their lives every day and learn about this interesting and historic area from your local guide (and new friend!) to get a feel for how locals have lived their lives in Shanghai for generations. End your morning by exploring a local temple, tickets included with your tour.

Authentic, Shanghai Food Tours!

★★★★★ Reviewed by Guest on 2018-05-17
Authentic, Shanghai Food Tours! If you want to try real Shanghai specialties, do this tour. The places Riuxi took us to, especially eating in a chef’s dining room with probably the best dish of the tour, is not something every other tour company can offer. We really liked the focus on giving business to eateries that are trying to make high quality, chemical-free food. Everything is local, including beers, the tour was a good distance and the history you learn along the way in between stops is fascinating.
