Food is powerful, enhancing the intensity of the memories we build. It introduces cultures, defines memories and provides a window on a new destination. Tasting the food of a city provides a fascinating insight into its ethnic diversity, history, character and gastronomic trends. In Shanghai, food is at the heart of everything as an integral part of its identity for 3,000 years. Many of the city’s most beloved traditional dishes trace the city’s storied history. Your Private Shanghai Food Tour takes you on a culinary voyage around authentic Shanghainese flavours: a delicious journey through a rich and evolving food scene and influenced by the East China Sea

Shanghai’s most iconic dishes like braised eggplant, soft grilled oysters, juicy scallops, delicate mandarin fish, famous xiao long bao soup dumplings, hairy crab nian gao and Di Shui Dong ribs that fall off the bone are all celebrated on the Private Shanghai Food Tour.
