- Eat your way through 5000 years of culinary history
- Try famous jianbing - handmade in front of you
The early bird gets, not the worm, but the best treats, when you’re in Beijing. Slip away from the crowded main roads and into the winding back streets of the Chinese capital on this exciting breakfast foodie tour led by a local guide. You’re in search of authentic and finger-licking good snacks prepared freshly every morning by artisan stallholders. Along the way - charming scenes of everyday life in traditional Beijing neighbourhoods. You’ll tour a wet market, wander with the locals as they do their morning grocery shopping, and meet the vendors as you sample more than 10 different dishes.
This will be the most memorable breakfast of your stay in China, and surely the most filling too. With a small group of similarly foodie friends, you’ll learn how Chinese people have traditionally cooked in tandoors, peek into ancient siheyuan courtyards, see heaps of lotus root and taste yoghurt from a recipe passed down generations. Another highlight will be snacking on a jianbing, similar to a stuffed crepe. This is one of the most popular Chinese breakfast streetfoods and rapidly becoming known around the world - yours will taste sublime, straight from the pan!
