Meet at a central location near the Chunxi Road Pedestrian Street, jump in a private tuk-tuk at about 6:30 p.m., and wind your way through the streets and communities of Chengdu to find the best food in the city. Your guide takes you to eateries that locals love. Cover a lot of ground, and go off the beaten path to family-run restaurants that most travelers couldn't find on their own. Between food stops, chat with your guide about the city while drinking unlimited chilled beer and soda during the ride.
While visiting 4-5 food stops, hear stories about the families that have been making their specialties for generations. Watch food being made and learn about what makes it so special to Chengdu locals. Whether it's enjoying hand-made dumplings in the chef's house, braving the spicy dishes Sichuan is famous for, or sampling some of Chengdu's unique snacks, there's something for everyone to try.
Your tour finishes at about 10:30 p.m. at a bar where you'll sip on a drink with the locals. You can decide to stay at the bar or find your own way home or to your next activity.
