What To Expect
Meet your food guide in the morning at Xiangyang Park, taking a half hour to investigate this picturesque green space before digging into your food crawl. Observe tai chi masters and water calligraphers going about their daily rituals, learning about these fascinating practices from your guide.
Then get ready to start your food adventure. Head to your first street stall nearby, taking a moment to absorb the sounds and smells as a mouthwatering Chinese dish is prepared and served right out of the wok. You’ll have a chance to enjoy a selection of savory breakfast pancakes, fried dumplings and fresh-pulled noodles during your exploration.
Continue next to a nearby wet market, where you’ll stroll among vendors hawking a variety of fresh produce, fish, and meat. Make sure to stay hungry, because your next stop will offer a chance to sample xiaolongbao, Shanghai's famous soup dumpling. Watch them steam in bamboo baskets before grabbing one, carefully piercing its skin, slurping out the delicious soup, then popping it into your mouth, savoring the tasty filling inside.
Finish your food excursion with a sweet treat, stopping for a pastry at a local bakery. Enjoy the creamy coconut and winter melon filling surrounded by flaky pastry crust. Your stomach now feeling satisfied after a few hours’ worth of tasty food discoveries, leave your group near the Jing'an Temple Metro stop.
