Beijing’s dinner time cuisine is so much more than the crowded tourist markets featuring bugs and mystery meat on sticks! Join this small group food tour as you explore delicious, traditional dishes shoulder-to-shoulder with Beijingers in a traditional Hutong neighborhood. You’ll meet your bilingual guide and small group at a convenient location, then head out to try traditional dishes that Chinese chefs have been perfecting for thousands of years.
  • An off-the-beaten-track dinner crawl through Old Beijing
  • Sample 15 different dishes at 3 different food stops
  • Escape the tourist track with a taste of authentic local food
  • Learn about the history of the city's culinary traditions
What to Expect
The cuisine of northeast China is an eclectic, savory mix of imperial food traditions and the humbler fare of local migrant populations. Beijing is the best place to sample regional specialties, but most visitors get stuck on the same tourist track. During this insider’s food crawl through Lao Beijing, or Old Beijing, you’ll discover under-the-radar eateries and family-run restaurants. Sample traditional dishes alongside locals as you tuck into 15 different treats from three different food stops, along with local stalls. Tours are limited to 8 people for a personalized experience. As you travel through the back alleys of one of Beijing’s last surviving hutongs, or traditional residences, you’ll learn about the diverse flavors that have fueled the city for millennia. Prepare to be treated to an edible history lesson as you embark on a fact-filled taste tour. Learn about the invasions of Genghis Khan as you tuck into a Mongolian hotpot, and explore the city's hutong culture through a taste of Beijing BBQ chicken wings. Top off the evening with a Beijinger favorite—a family-run chicken restaurant—and a taste of the city’s one-of-a-kind jarred yogurt.
