Oodles of Noodles
A foodie’s dream, this UnTour shows you Shanghai’s culinary underworld of noodle joints that have a cult-like following. Five stops showcase the city’s best mom and pop noodle shops – from wheat noodles smothered in a delicious sesame sauce to freshly made noodles pulled out of a lump of dough in front of your eyes. Trust us, you’ve never tasted anything like this before!
For more than 2,000 years, Chinese chefs and home cooks have been perfecting dumplings in all their delicious bite-sized forms. Carried abroad by Silk Road travelers over the centuries, dumplings are popular around the world, but nothing tops the original! From street side stalls frying up pot stickers to a family-owned boiled dumpling spot from China’s frigid northeast, we’ll taste the best dumplings Shanghai has to offer, including the city’s famous xiaolongbao (soup dumplings) and also visit a wet market.
China is home to more than 50 million vegetarians, but maintaining a vegetarian diet here can be difficult if you don’t have the right vocabulary and tools. The experience is designed to take the guesswork out of ordering for those who still want to experience the local culinary traditions of street food and hole-in-the-wall dining. Alternatively, UnTour Shanghai’s Street Eats – Breakfast and Night Markets tours can be tailored to accommodate vegetarian guests.
