Chinatown Food Tour
Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Boston’s Chinatown is filled with so many little shops and restaurants—it’s easy to get lost amid its colorful window displays and enticing aromas. Join us on this culinary and cultural adventure led by an expert guide. Our journey begins in the heart of Chinatown, where we’ll learn about its history while stopping at a few shops and bakeries for samples. Next we’ll visit a Chinese herbal shop to examine traditional Chinese medicinal remedies before touring a Chinese market to explore exotic produce and other unique offerings. We'll also try dim sum from a traditional and popular restaurant, enjoying it either outdoors, picnic style, or to take home, depending on the weather. (Dim sum dishes often contain pork or shrimp, and they are not gluten free.) Tuition covers all restaurant fees and tips. Please note: Students will be asked to adhere to public health guidelines. Meeting location will be emailed one week prior to the tour. All walks meet rain or shine.
