Meet your guide and small group of up to eight people in central Beijing for a morning departure. Set out on a walking tour of some of the city’s oldest hutong neighborhoods, stopping at local cafés, street food stalls, and artisan shops to tuck into traditional breakfast dishes side-by-side with the locals.
Enjoy an authentic introduction to Chinese cuisine as you sample a huge variety of foods, starting with delicious silken tofu, topped with savory toppings such as chive flowers. Next, tuck into brown sugar donuts from a halal stall, then taste breakfast specialties such as "baozi"(steamed buns), deep-fried crullers, and sweet soymilk at another popular street food stall. Before you move on, try a glass of fermented mung bean milk, a Beijing elixir that elderly locals swear by, and some jarred Beijing yogurt that can only be found in the capital.
Sip a cup of coffee as you watch your "jianbing" (Chinese crepes) being made. Finish your breakfast banquet with a bowl of sweet almond pudding.
At the end of your tour, your guide can help you find your way back to your hotel.
