WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE CHINATOWN FOOD TOUR:
One-of-a-Kind Food Tastings – Our guided Chinatown Food Tour visits five sit-down tasting locations in the historic Chinatown community. Full portion samples, enough for a large lunch or light dinner, are included in the ticket price and offer Chinese food delicacies from the Canton, Mandarin and Szechuan regions. Stops include Hong Kong-style Dim Sum, an authentic Beijing Peking duck diner and America’s #1 rated Sze Chuan cuisine. All food tastings are included in the ticket price. See all Tasting Locations to the right.
Please note, we CAN provide substitutions for vegetarians, gluten aversions, and those who do not drink alcohol, but we CANNOT provide substitutions for any other allergies or dietary preferences. Substitutions must be indicated in advance at the time of ticket purchase.
Historic & Cultural Experience – Between samples, you’ll receive a behind-the-scenes look at Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood with visits to intriguing cultural, religious and historic landmarks. Your informative guide will share their expertise of local customs, eclectic folklore and authentic Chinese specialty stores.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THE CHINATOWN FOOD TOUR?
Our Chinatown Food Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour is ideal for Chicago residents and travelers eager to discover the culinary secrets and ancient traditions of this extraordinary neighborhood. Whether you’re vacationing in Chicago for the first time or a proud Chicagoan- we guarantee that you’ll walk way with a greater understanding of the geographic diversity and culinary techniques of Asia’s finest cuisine.
ABOUT THE TICKET PRICE – WHY IS IT MORE EXPENSIVE?
While we visit a total of five tasting locations and restaurants on the Chinatown Food Tour, three of them are sit-down tastings that last 30-45 minutes each, allowing plenty of time to carefully observe the pageantry and traditional etiquette of ancient Chinese customs as each meal is served at the dining table while savoring full portion dishes, including Beijing Peking Duck, Ma Po Tofu, Dim-Sum and much more. The slightly higher ticket price reflects the larger, more expensive portion sizes than you’ll experience on our other Food Tours.
