Culinary Backstreets is proud to partner with the highly rated UnTour Shanghai, offering visitors and expats alike the opportunity to truly eat like a local. The walks are designed to showcase the best of Shanghai’s hidden gems and historic back alleys, taking guests to authentic hole-in-the-wall eateries that are equal parts delicious, enlightening and exciting. With several different culinary walks, guests can specialize their eating experiences in Shanghai’s famous dumpling scene, hidden noodle joints, street food markets and much more.
For rates and more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Culinary tours last approximately 3 hours, with minimal walking between sampling spots.
Our culinary walks cost US$70 or $90 for the Hands-on Dumplings Delights, inclusive of all tastings stops and non-alcoholic beverages. With public tours scheduled almost every day of the week, there is sure to be one that fits your schedule.
Our maximum capacity is 8-10 people for most of our walks. If your group is larger, send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll work to accommodate your whole party.
From jam-packed hole-in-the-wall noodle joints to queue-worthy street stalls, we lead you through a culinary world that is nearly impossible to navigate without a Mandarin speaking guide at your side. Your bilingual, native-English speaking guide is on hand to help translate, advise and answer any questions you have about life in China – and they’ll also fill you in on Chinese food traditions, local history and make recommendations for your time in Shanghai.
We only work with trusted vendors whom we’ve been frequenting for years. These stops are our absolute favorite places to eat – the same places we take our family and friends.
English, Spanish, French & Dutch for our private tours, but please check with us if you have a specific request. All of our public weekly tours are held in English.
Once you have selected an available walk route and date, you will be directed to pay the fee or deposit for the walk. If you are registering for a walk that requires approval, your reservation request will need to be approved by an administrator before it is finalized and your card will not be charged until the walk is approved.
