On this Xian night food tour, our local guide will lead you to try various delicious local foods hidden in the small lanes and share the history and culture of the dishes and Muslim Quarter with you. You may feel like a local wandering around the bustling street. You will have an unforgettable culinary experience.
1. Try authentic Xi’an snacks, such as Chinese hamburger – Roujiamo, Soup dumplings, Ice Peak (a kind of orange juice-like soda drink), and lamb & beef skewers.
2. Learn about the immigration history of Muslim people there and the history of Muslim Quarter from a knowledgeable guide.
If your hotel is near the Bell Tower, your guide will meet you at your hotel lobby in the late afternoon. If the hotel is far away from the Bell tower, your guide will meet you at east foot of Drum Tower (Gulou, 鼓楼). Then the gourmet tour starts! First, your guide will explain immigration history of Muslim people there and the history of Muslim Quarter. Walking for a while you will arrive at the Fanji Restaurant, a well-known local eatery. In the restaurant you will try authentic Chinese hamburger, Roujiamo. A can of Ice Peak (a kind of orange juice-like soda drink) is a good match for Roujiamo. After that you will continue the food tour to Jiasan Steamed Buns Restaurant (Jiasan Guantangbao, 贾三灌汤包). Your taste buds will be surely satisfied by the sauce and the fillings.
