Full description
Go on a six-hour food and drink tour of Shanghai and get around by bike to work off the calories and get a feel for the city between stops. Get to know the characteristic Shanghai cuisine known for its use of heavy, flavorful sauces. Eat (and drink) your way around China via the diverse regional cuisines you encounter while admiring the city's unique, historical architecture.  Start by trying JianBing, a popular Chinese breakfast dish similar to crepes. Then let your guide teach you how to eat ShenJianBao step by step. One of the most popular homegrown delicacies of Shanghai, ShenJianBao is a type of fried dumpling filled with pork and delicious, savory juices. While it's insanely hot and notoriously difficult to eat, your guide will ensure that you know how to eat ShenJianBao like a local.  Delve deeper into Shanghai's food culture by cycling through the backyards of traditional stone-gate houses (Shikumen), which soon will be demolished due to ongoing urban renewal projects. Try the most typical Shanghai meals and snacks such as Nanxiang Xiaolongbao, scallion oil noodles with different toppings. Don't worry if you don't eat meat – there are plenty of vegetarian options at every stop. Wash it all down with Baijiu, the famed local spirit that is much better than its reputation. Plus, try a variety of local beers, including rare Chinese black beer and hefeweizens, in addition to the region's famous huangjiu (yellow wine). After the tour, you will have a good idea of what makes the cuisine of Shanghai stand out.
