Chicago Chinatown Food and Walking Tour

Saturday, April 22

Bring your walking shoes and a big appetite, and join us in Chicago for an afternoon of Chinatown cuisine and culture.

On this 2.5-hour walking tour, you’ll see the bustling Chinatown Square and sample some of the richest cuisine around, including Cantonese dim sum and tea, Portuguese-Chinese bakery treats, Szechuan chicken, and Mongolian hot pot, all the while learning about the history of how these foods and cultures arrived in Chicago.

This is a totally unique culinary tour experience, and one we hope you don’t miss!
