Chengdu is a food-lovers paradise; colorful spice arrays, bubbling hot pot, and hidden hole-in-the-wall eats await. 

About the Chengdu Food Tour

Chengdu is known as a hot spot for food lovers across China and beyond. But, only Chengdu residents know the best local digs, the trendiest “fly restaurants” (hole-in-the-walls), and the freshest wet markets. Luckily, we’ve got a Chengdu local as a guide for this evening’s foodie tour of Chengdu.

You’ll have the chance to see the source of all Sichuanese recipes as we peruse ingredients at a locals-only wet market and pop in a few tingly Sichuan peppercorns to learn more about the ma to Sichuan’s la. Get ready to sample guo kui (spiced meat and veggies stuffed in a fresh baked pita-like bread), Chengdu noodles and dumplings, street-side baked breads, and just in case your mouth is screaming for more, a full Sichuan family-style dinner.  

What We Love
  • - Meandering a local wet market to learn about Chengdu’s staple ingredients and spices
  • - Discovering the unassuming but locally acclaimed “fly” restaurants of the city
  • - Sipping on local Sichuan baijiu along the way
