Eat with Locals: Shanghai Breakfast Food Tour

  • Approx. 2 hours
  • Daily
  • Shanghai Activity


There is a Chinese saying that "Eat well for breakfast, eat full for lunch, and eat less for dinner." For most of us, breakfast is the most important meal in a day. Take a break from your coffee and donuts fare and do some walking in the morning to build up an appetite and load up on carbs. Dive into culture and great interactions with the locals and learn about each other.


All eateries are well-selected within walking distance, approx. 10-15 minutes walking from each other. Accompanied by one of our local foodie guides, you will learn about Shanghai's famously food-obsessed culture and savor its best-loved dishes at hidden-away neighborhood gems, see how Shanghai locals start their day with some of the best breakfast. All our foodie guides are Shanghai locals who love to share their stories about living in Shanghai. If you are a Shanghai expat, you will get plenty of advice along the way.

Food Dishes Highlights: Shengjianbao, Lamb Kebabs, Pan-fried Beef Dumplings, Fresh Ribs with Rice Cake, Soybean Mil, Deep-fried Dough Stick, seasonal foods like Xiaolongbao with Crab Meat, etc. You will try 3-4 items of them. Come Hungry!
