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 Phoenix Restaurant 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.
