Join this food tour!
My wife and I had a great food tour with Cora. We ate lots of tasty things and because we walked around we were able to get our bearings in Shanghai and ended up coming back to the same area several times.

We even happened upon the dessert stand that sells these amazing marshmallow treats that we ate on the tour. Cora was very fun and knowledgeable. She gave us great ideas of other activities we could do during our stay as well.

We love Lost Plate tours and hope they add one to Guangzhou very soon!

Top food tour with a top food travel company
May 2021
Abby provided a well curated food trip of Shanghai incorporating pieces of 'Old Shanghai' (yummy noodles in a shop that has been around for something like 30 years and crossing generations) with new (delicious lotus root and pork powder wonton soup!). She was very knowledgeable and kind, and a pleasure to stroll the streets of the French Concession with. I have done a number of Lost Plate tours and always rate my experience. Thank you!

Fantastic introduction to Shanghai Street Food
We recently went on the Street Food tour. Our guide Abby was very knowledgable, giving us lots of insights into the making of traditional food. One of our group was vegetarian and was given alternatives at all venues. We would highly recommend this tour.

Must do tour!
Oct 2020
This is my third Lost plate food tour. I have previously done the Xi'an and the Chengdu tours. They are a must do now when i travel. every tour gives me a better understanding of the history and culture tied to the regional cuisine and the restaurants and food carts are always places I never would have found on my own . The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Highly Highly recommend this experience!

Great food and a fun tour!
I recently won a tour with Lost Plate and was excited to try it out. Since there aren’t many tours happening now I decided to round up a group of friends and colleagues to go with me.
Other than my wife (who is Chinese) the group was all expats who have lived in China for sometime.
Even though we all had some experience with Shanghai and Shanghai food we still found the tour very interesting and fun. We made several stops at some “off the beaten path” locations that specialized in different local foods. The food was great, the beer was plentiful, and our guide Abby was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
This tour would be great for visitors and guests to Shanghai as it gives you a nice overview of many different types of food and let’s you have a good and interesting evening without how to do the planning. Even for someone who is familiar with Shanghai I would bet you will learn something, try something new, and explore some restaurants and neighborhoods you are not familiar with.
The Lost Plate organization was very easy to work with and well organized, and the tour was very well planned. Highly recommended.

We can't thank you enough for joining us and it was our pleasure to host you and your wife. Hope we get to see you again soon!

A great way to experience Shanghai
May 2020
We had a great experience. Great food, great company, and a Joe was a great guide. After living in Shanghai for more than one year, we discovered new food and new places to eat. We have already returned to several of the restaurants and street food shops only the week after. Do this tour.
