What you'll do

Meet your English speaking guide at an easy-to-find central location near Shichahai area. Then hop on your private van and travel throughout central Beijing, visit 4 restaurants specializing in regional cuisine from 4 different provinces in China, learn about the culture and history that has shaped China’s regional cuisine. Chow down on the largest plate of chicken you’ve ever seen at a restaurant specializing in Xinjiang cuisine from China’s Northwestern-most province. Discover exotic flavors and roasted meat from Yunnan province, any Beijinger’s favorite regional cuisine. Take an adventure through Beijing’s narrowest alleyway to a hidden restaurant specializing in local Beijing dishes.
Between tastings, sample local beverages paired with each cuisine such as freshly made fruit juice, tea and beer. The tour finishes with cooking your own skewered meats and vegetables in a hip Sichuan hot pot joint.
Plus a lot more surprises!

Nicole knows the hutongs inside and out! Her favorite thing do to other than being a host, is traveling off the beaten paths. Ernestina is rays of sunshine in human form- she is the bubbliest host you will ever meet. She loves studying astrology and star signs, so ask about your weekly horoscope when you meet her! Ruiya is into photography and enjoys watching films, and she spends her time exploring the alleyways to see how the hutong live goes by.

Where you'll be

Most of the places that we visit on the tour are unique family-run restaurants that are open for a long time and frequented by locals. We visit the same eateries every night on the tour so we know that the food is safe and consistent in quality.

Don’t miss out on this tour if you are a foodie. Our guide Nicole and our driver took us to 4 different restaurants that we would have never found on our own, each representing a province in China. There is so much to eat on the tour, so make sure to come hungry. I was glad that I skipped lunch 😂. If you only have a few days in Beijing, this tour is definitely for you.

Nicole was a fantastic guide and we had an awesome time. We ate some great big platter chicken, DIY Chinese kebabs, home cooked dishes and so much more. We jammed to great songs in the van so the tour was never boring! The food tour mixed with a little cultural information was amazing. 11/10 would recommend.

I had a short trip to only Beijing, and this tour was perfect for me! It gave me an opportunity to sample different types of cuisines from other regions of China. The van transportation made the tour very comfortable too. My personal favorite was the Yunnan restaurant. The trotters there were phenomenal! The guide was friendly and informational too. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Definitely come on this tour on the first few nights of your stay in Beijing! It is a great way to find out about the city and the food that locals eat. We got to try local beers and drinks from different provinces and they were well paired with the dishes we had. We also went to a restaurant in a small Hutong house complex that we would have never found out if it wasn’t for this tour. Thanks again to our guide Nicole for a great night!
