What To Expect

Xi'an City Wall (Chengqiang)
You will meet at an easy-to-find central location and then wind your way through the narrow streets and alleys by tuktuk within the Xi’an City Wall to find the best food in the city. We’ll take you places where only locals go. You’ll cover a lot of ground and get off the beaten path to family-run restaurants that you (and other tourists) won’t find on your own. Between food stops, you’ll be able to chat with your English-speaking guide about the city while drinking unlimited chilled beer and soda during the ride.

• Admission Ticket Free

Muslim Quarter
While visiting our 4-5 food stops, you will get to learn about the families that have been making their specialties for generations. You’ll watch your food being made and learn about what makes it so special to Xian locals. Whether it’s sitting by an old man grilling meat over coals in a quaint Muslim Quarter alleyway, or watching noodles hand-pulled to order, there is something to try for everyone.

The tour will finish at the only local brewery in Xian where you can tour the facility and sample what’s on tap before we treat you to a pint of your choice.

Reviews

Great local food and a fun evening
Ailton007, 05-07-2022
Michelle our guide was great and organized this tour well. We stopped at 4 places and the "Near Wall" brewery last to try some local craft beer, but highlight was the food. Included lamb skewers, beef soup dumplings, fried Chinese style chicken, soups etc. Tuk-tuk rides and experiencing the Muslim quarter was fun. Afterwards, I walked to Bell and Drum Towers for some amazing night shots of these temples and walked some more in the Muslim quarter to soak it all in. We found a table everywhere and Michelle was quick to order and provided interesting historical context of the food origin. Also, am finally able to eat beef soup dumplings properly!
Delicious, Educational, Fun

This was my first Lost Tour experience and I already booked a second. Excellent evening full of delicious food at spots we would never have found on our own. Our guide Michelle was fantastic and helped give us context around all of our food experiences. The noodles were my favorite but it's hard to choose. I just wish I had a couple of extra stomachs.
Yummy!

Eat Well and Meet the City of Xi'an

This was a great experience and great way to see a lot of Xi'an in a short time. Michelle was an excellent guide with an upbeat attitude and lots of knowledge about the food and the city. My favorite dishes were the gourd chicken and the dumplings. I also happened to love our tuk tuk driver and it was nice as a solo traveler to meet up with other foreigners.
Good food tour!

We had a great time and great food on our (private!) tour with Michelle. The highlight for us was definitely the bowl of biangbiangmian we had at our first stop. These tasty hand pulled noodles are so typical of Xi'an! We also enjoyed our stop at Mr. Liu's BBQ joint because we got to interact with him and his wife. The third stop for us was the least enjoyable, the dumplings were ok but we have lived in China for 14 years so this kind of food is nothing new for us. We then went to a small restaurant to eat a delicious chicken but at that point we were already full. We ended the tour in a brewery for a beer tasting.

In brief this is a great food tour but maybe we would have enjoyed to visit less places so we don't feel rushed to eat and to leave unfinished dishes behind. For example the dumpling place could be skipped and replaced with a dessert or some sweets from one of the stalls in the market. I think it would also be interesting to introduce a bit more of background about the history, the Muslim quarter and the special food sold in the stalls.

I would recommend Michelle though as she was knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. And we loved riding the tuk-tuk!
