3-Hour Beijing Foodie Experience


From sesame cakes to steamed buns, Beijing is a city packed with flavor.

A private guide ensures a personalized experience, including catering to dietary restrictions, and easy logistics.

Please be aware that this tour doesn't include transportation to and from the attractions, but I can help you get a taxi or other form of transport (own expense).

The price is for One or Two persons, if more than 2 persons, please let me know, I can arrange for bigger groups as well.

Itinerary

Meet your guide in the lobby of your Beijing hotel at 5:30pm. (with choice of departure time) and travel together by taxi (at you own expense) to the main market area. Stroll through the hutongs, or old alleyways, and learn about their history as you walk to your first eatery.

Upon arrival at Lanzhou Xiao Guan Restaurant, sample 3-5 different types of kabobs accompanied by side dishes like eggplant, garlic, leeks, and beans. Then, try tanjianbing, a savory fried pancake popular among locals.
Continue walking down the same street to taste a number of other sweet and savoroy specialties, including sesame cakes, Sichuan kabobs, peanut milk, cold noodles, plum wine, and more.

Throughout the tour, learn about each dish's ingredients and cultural significance from your guide.
At the end of your tour, opt to stay and continue exploring the night markets or return to your hotel.

The price is for One or Two persons. If more than 2 persons, please let me know, I can arrange for bigger groups as well.
