The hutongs of Beijing are centuries-old residential lanes, where ancient traditions are still kept alive within a fast-changing city. Skip the tourist-clogged hutongs in more popular areas with an insider’s food tour of Dong Si, an off-the-beaten-track neighborhood famous for its savory treats. Taste your way around authentic markets, shops, restaurants, and bakeries while exploring Beijing’s hidden food scene during this unique culinary visit with a guide.

What to Expect

Hutongs, a staple of Beijing urban design, are spread throughout the city, but tourists tend to flock to the same popular areas. During this customizable food tour of Beijing’s hidden hutongs, you’ll follow your taste buds far off-the-beaten-track as you sample more than 20 local delicacies.

Your guide, a Beijing insider, will take you to Dong Si, an under-the-radar neighborhood where Beijing food traditions still thrive. You’ll have a chance to eat like a local and get to know a one-of-a-kind community with stops at corner bakeries, out-of-the-way food shops, and family-run restaurants.

Taste local delicacies, such as duck neck, fried ox tripe, and fried sugar cake, as you learn about the city’s vibrant culinary history, with your guide on hand to dish out answers to all of your burning food questions. Along the way, you’ll discover overlooked historical sights and picturesque neighborhoods that few tourists have a chance to experience. This is a private tour for just you and your party.
