Eat like a local under the cover of night on a culinary tour within the residential heart of Pudong, beyond the soaring skyscrapers of downtown Shanghai. Start at a busy crossroads that was once considered the furthest you could get from central Shanghai, and is now one of the most densely populated residential are-as in the city. Follow the lead of your guide toward a frenetic local night market, one of the last remaining in the city, and sample the fried dumplings that are famous among locals here – so famous, in fact, that you’ll almost certainly need to brave a line to try some!

Afterwards, try some dofu nao at a nearby stall, a popular breakfast dish for Chinese locals. Depending on the topping, dofu nao can be either sweet or savoury, but is always melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Afterwards, stroll through the market and pick up a few snacks along the way before arriving at a nearby restaurant. Wrap up your journey here over a few helpings of traditional Chinese fare shared family-style with your group!
