Full description
Explore the complex layers of Chinese culture and the many contributions these people have made to both Chicago and the world. And what better way to show off Chinese culture then through food? Your guide will take the confusion and language barrier away as you sample your way through a variety of Chinatown's best restaurants and well-kept secret recipes. Start your tour at Lao Sze Chuan and begin with some yummy dim sum dumplings and a traditional Chinese tea tasting. Next, it will be time for a sweet treat - buttery custard tarts from Chinatown's oldest bakery. Then, try a unique and delicious spicy meat sandwich from the Xi'an region. Afterward, stroll through the charming Chinatown Square with its ethnic grocery stores and souvenir shops. Finally, taste a sampling of succulent dry chili chicken, followed by the famous spicy Szechuan hot pot. You'll have traveled all over China but only walked a few blocks on this delicious tour of one of Chicago's most fascinating neighborhoods.

Excellent tour, well worth it.

We did the Chinatown food tour. This was a great tour and we learnt so much about the history, culture and food from different regions of China. Our guide, Eric, shared knowledge and demonstrated so much enthusiasm during the tour. The food was outstanding. We were lucky to have a small group (just the three of us) which made it really personal and enabled us to ask lots of questions. Very enjoyable and well recommended.

The tour was excellent and the food was delicious. My only complaint would be that I would prefer more information on the history of the food rather than just the history of Chinese immigration to the US.

Wonderful tour and tour guide

We stopped at five different Chinese restaurants for five different Chinese dishes. The tour guide was very informative and gave interesting history of Chinatown. Would recommend to everyone.
