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. 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. Please note: Meeting location will be emailed one week prior to the tour. All walks meet rain or shine. Covid-depending, we'll eat either in the restaurant, outdoors, or as take home. Dim sum dishes often contain pork or shrimp, and they are not gluten free. Tuition covers all restaurant fees and tips.
