Chengdu Evening Food Tour by Tuktuk
- Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
Come and see the best the capital of Sichuan cuisine has to offer, on a tour designed by our founder Ruixi Hu, who is born and raised here in Chengdu. This tuk-tuk serviced tour covers unlimited food, beer, and soft drinks to try at least 10 dishes across 4+ stops, plus one local bar.
About This Tour:
There are a million reasons Chengdu is an international food destination. It’s a UNESCO city of gastronomy. It’s the most popular Chinese cuisine in China. Not only is Chengdu the capital of Sichuan cuisine, but also the capital of eating out, with the highest per-capita ratio of restaurants, hot pot eateries, and teahouses in all of China. And at the same time, you could know all of this and yet know very little about food in Chengdu.
On this tour designed by our founder Ruixi Hu, travel through her hometown by tuktuk and encounter spots you could never find on your own for a mix of street food, sit-down restaurants, and family homes. In the capital of all things cultured, delicious, and unique, visit the eateries that took her a lifetime to discover on our very special evening food tour.
What You'll Do:
- Stuffed pancakes come in 4 flavor profiles: sweet, salty, spicy, and strange. Discover this flavor profile unique to Chengdu at a street-stall-turned-shop that has served up strange for over 30 years.
- Chengdu style wontons come in 5 flavors- test your spice threshold in a local family's apartment, in the middle of a previous military base built when China was on the cusp of the Cultural Revolution.
- Dandan noodles mean “bamboo pole street hawker noodles” - for this recipe to be known as THE hawker noodles should be an impossible feat.
- Enjoy unlimited beers while exploring the backstreets on this tuktuk serviced exploration of Chengdu’s best local food.
- Sample local delicacies: pork ribs are soaked in cooking wine and specialty soy-sauce, before being fried and topped with aromatic fried garlic. This is a classic Chengdu dish for distinguished guests.
- Try locally made Chengdu spirits in a 70s-80s themed bar that captures a unique turning point in China’s history.
