About the Event
Join as we see the best of Shanghai and enjoy its fantastic street food culture on this tour!
The bike ride starts in the Former French Concession (Xuhui) on the streets shaded by beautiful trees. We will make our way to the international settlement in Jing’an District, stopping at a small restaurant for traditional Shanghai-style breakfast. We will try the famous Four Heavenly Kings (Chinese pancake, fried dough, steamed sticky rice balls, and soy milk).
Next, we will continue to ride to another local restaurant for soup dumplings - some say this restaurant has the best in Shanghai. From there, the tour heads along Suzhou Creek for a break on the Bund. On our way to the Huangpu River, we may try China’s most popular street food Jianbing from a food stand. After the break, we will pedal north to Hongkou where Jewish refugees stayed during World War II. During this time, Shanghai was a shelter for these refugees and thousands of lives were saved. We may have hot coffee or tea at the White Horse Café which once was owned by a Jewish family. It was rebuilt by the Shanghai government a few years ago. Finally, we will arrive at a vegetarian restaurant next to Xiahai Temple which is a Buddhist temple that not many have heard of. We will try some interesting dishes that look and taste like meat or fish but are made from plants.
