Description

After meeting your friendly, Expert Local Bilingual Guide at a central location, you'll get snacking almost immediately. In addition to the delicious tasting stops, you'll learn about Chengdu's development, and its strategic importance in China's history. As dusk approaches, you’ll also snack your way through a market with other local shoppers, where you will learn about ingredients, food sources and the role that fast-disappearing markets play in the community and see first-hand how locals live. You'll end with a family-style meal over beer and local spirits with your newfound foodie friends.

Eat like a local. Taste one of the most classic local eats, guo kui, spiced meat and veggies stuffed in a fresh-baked or fried pita-like bread bun. Explore a local market and see exactly what ingredients go into making the freshest Sichuan cuisine.

Discover exotic flavors. Find out why locals go crazy for rabbit heads slathered in mouth-numbing spice and many other new treats. Try local beer and some of China’s best small-batch baijiu spirits.

Taste authentic Sichuan cuisine. Dive into a variety of Sichuan-style noodles and dumplings, including Chengdu’s famous sweetwater noodles. Taste the famed Sichuan peppercorns to get your mouth buzzing.

Share a meal. Nosh on fried spiced breads & other street snacks before ending your evening with a family-style or hot pot dinner to sample even more dishes.
