Private Shanghai Street Breakfast Tour


Meet your guide in central Shanghai and set off to discover some of its best-loved street snacks. Delve into one of Shanghai’s busiest older neighborhoods, and as you walk and talk, hear about the city’s culinary styles and history. Learn about the king kongs (si da jingang): the four much-loved specialities of dough sticks, pancakes, rice rolls, and soybean milk. Explore backstreets alive with stalls, and enjoy up to four tasting stops. Enjoy a scrumptious, fried dough stick, savor a sumptuously sticky rice roll, and try some comforting soybean milk and soft, fluffy pancakes. Along the way, absorb the lively atmosphere and view the other goodies on offer as your guide tells you more about the recipes and ingredients. Next, take a cab or the subway (own expense) with your guide to Shouning Road, another street foodie hotspot. Mingle with the locals eating here and taste a select number of additional delicacies, such as xiaolongbao, the city’s yummy soup-filled dumplings, and further goodies as you wish (own expense). After three hours, your tour ends here, leaving you to continue exploring independently or return to your hotel with directions from your guide.
