These eateries are local legends where the food quality is high and the flavours are even better. You do not have to worry about what to order or how to communicate, as the expert foodie guide will do all that for you. The Chengdu culinary scene is not just defined by food but also by drink – and with unlimited drinks included, you will get to experience it all.
18:30 - 22:00
Meet your local foodie expert and set off on a culinary adventure in a traditional tuk-tuk. You will visit four different restaurants where you have the opportunity to sample authentic Chengdu food. Along the way, you will explore pedestrian alleyways, hidden parks and small temples.
After a warm welcome in a hidden home, sit down and tuck in to some of the best dumplings in China. Sample Chengdu’s most popular street snack, Sichuan stuffed pancakes, which are only found on the streets of this city. Hotpot is a popular dish so a traditional Chengdu hotpot is a must-try. The guide will show you how to cook the meat and vegetables in the boiling pot of broth infused with Sichuan-style herbs and spices set in the middle of the table.
If you still have room to spare, you can also try local spicy specialties and noodles. End the evening in a secret bar located on the 21st floor of a towering building to enjoy a drink with a view.
Unlimited beer, rice wine and soft drinks are included and throughout the evening the guide will explain the ingredients of each dish and how it is cooked. At the end of the tour, the driver will take you back to the hotel.
