Late Night Food Tour in the Shanghai's French Concession
From $80.09

Eat like a local on this Shanghai late-night food tour, visiting off-the-path eateries, street barbecues, and a night market. Let your guide handle navigation as you sample more than 20 street-food bites—enough for dinner. Dishes you’ll likely taste: soup dumplings, lamb skewers, and boiled crayfish, washed down by local craft beer. Your guide will also tell you about the food, history, and culture of the former French Concession.

What to Expect
Greet your guide and group at a former French Concession subway station, and stroll towards the Xintiandi area. Your first stop will be a Uyghur restaurant for hand-pulled noodles, followed by a local eatery for the essential “xiaolongbao” soup dumplings.

Continue to Zhaozhou Road street food bazaar, frequented by Anthony Bourdain, and see the border where French-style apartments give way to old stone “shikumen” houses. Try local dishes at three separate eateries as you learn how locals live and eat.

Along the way, cleanse your palate with craft beer and enjoy your guide’s insights into Shanghai’s foodie culture and traditions. Your tour will finish in the former French Concession: Just ask your guide if you need directions to the subway or a taxi.

가이드분이 제가 첫 한국인 게스트라고 해서 리뷰 써봅니다. 가이드 분 친절하십니다. 신천지 일대의 여러 음식점과 바를 돌아봐요. 그리고 거리에 대한 짤막한 소개도 해주시고요. 한국 사람은 몰라서 못 올것 같은 음식점과 티룸을 알게 되어서 좋았어요. 가이드 분이 아무데나 데려가는 게 아니고 나름 자체적으로 선정하는 여러 기준이...More

Great tour

This was really a great experience not only about different styles of Chinese food and ways of cooking, but also very informative about the everyday life in Shanghai. Fantastic crash course of "Understanding China"!!! Jim! Thanks a lot!

Excellent food tour and intro to Shanghai

The great thing about food tours is that you get the opportunity to meet someone awesome like Lu (our guide) and also get to find out more about life in the city and some of the history. Our late night food tour was no exception...More

As I recall only a few blocks all level, all paved. It was a nice experience
