Beijing Hutong Food and Beer Tour by Tuk Tuk
Eat your way around Beijing’s old ‘hutong’ alleyways and courtyards on a 4-hour small-group tour. Explore by private tuk tuk and enjoy up to five food stops at tucked-away restaurants and homes you wouldn’t find by yourself. Taste staples like Beijing wraps, flame-grilled meats, and noodles, learn about local cuisine over unlimited beers and sodas, and enjoy a last beer stop at an Arrow Brewing Factory bar. Come hungry: your tastings amount to dinner.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group of 10 or fewer at an easy-to-find central location near Beijing’s Lama Temple. Then, set off by private tuk tuk into the crooked alleys and courtyards of the city’s old hutongs — Beijing’s original residential districts.

Absorb the historical atmosphere and as you explore, learn about traditional daily life here, including local cuisine. Delve into the bustling lanes and enjoy up to five food stops to sample local specialities, heading off the beaten path to homes or small family restaurants that you wouldn’t find alone.

At each stop, sample a local staple and learn how it’s been made in the same way for generations. Dishes may vary, but expect to savor noodles at a private home, grill meat on open flames, and wrap ingredients into freshly made Beijing wraps.

Between tastings, chat with your guide over unlimited local beer and sodas, and finish with more beer — this time courtesy of Arrow Factory Brewing. Sample one of Beijing’s best craft beers at this hutong bar and enjoy a glass of your chosen brew.

Your tour finishes in the area when your guide departs, leaving you with directions back to your hotel or tips on exploring further.

Sorry I did not respond sooner. No passports needed. Those little restaurants are pretty fun. If you are out on a weekend, at least one of those places had a very authentic crowd.
