Full description
Start the morning right by meeting your local foodie guide at an easy-to-find yet off the beaten path location. Then stroll through a residential hutong neighborhood, passing temples and markets along the way, while stopping to enjoy authentic breakfast dishes and drinks where locals eat. There are no tourists here, just family-run eateries and street stalls where everything is made to order like it has for generations.

While visiting 4-5 sit-down eateries, street stalls and markets, try over 10 breakfast dishes and drinks that Beijing locals love. Learn how each dish is made as they are prepared fresh for you to enjoy. Give Beijing's famous yogurt a try, watch savory pancakes prepared in a way you haven't seen before, visit a local market to see what's in season, and feast on a classic Beijing breakfast spread, plus much more.
