Event details

Heard about Beijing’s hutong alleyways, but not sure what to do or where to go? Join us for breakfast as we sample the most authentic and delicious snacks that are hiding in plain sight, once you get off the crowded roads and into the backstreets. Wake up early and explore the culinary scene with our trusted vendors, your bilingual guide and a small group of new foodie friends. Over the course of three hours, you’ll eat your way through China’s 5,000 years of culinary history, try new foods and gain an appreciation for the artisans making these handmade treats.

We’ll meander through some of Beijing’s oldest, original hutongs – we don’t take you to rebuilt or crowded areas filled with tourists. Step away from the hotel buffet and explore a historic and local neighborhood, brimming with local vendors and hole-in-the-wall eateries.
 
 
Highlights:
  • Visit a Traditional Wet Market
  • Vegetarian-Friendly
  • Meet Our Vendors In Beijing’s Hutong Alleyways
  • Taste 10+ Breakfast Dishes, Including the Famous Jianbing

Jianbing is becoming a worldwide phenomenon, but wait until you’ve tried the traditional Beijing snack – handmade in front of you!
 
 
Wander Throgh the Hutongs
 
These meandering alleyways bustle with local neighborhood life. Check out the siheyuan (ancient courtyard) architecture and the morning markets down the lanes.
 
 
Discover Chinese Cooking Methods 
 
Bet you didn’t know cooking in a tandoor is also a traditional Chinese cooking method! Taste yogurt made from a local recipe – and try some off-the-beaten-path specialty dishes.

These bustling markets are where locals bargain for their grocery shopping. Admire heaps of lotus root and see freshly-butchered halal lamb before sampling some local baked goods.
