What you'll do

Test your chopstick skills! We will taste 5 kinds of noodles from different parts of China and you will also get to see how they are made!

The types and flavors of noodles available in China is vast. It’s incredible to taste the different textures, spices, and sauces used in different regions.

As I said, I have done my research and these are the 5 noodles you can’t leave China without tasting.

This tour can easily be made vegetarian and it is also easy to avoid pork and shellfish!

Hello! My name is Sophie and I am obsessed with noodles.

I came to China for the first time in 2009 and have been hooked on noodles ever since. Now I live here and can eat them whenever I want :)

When I travel, I don’t like to waste my time on mediocre food. No matter where I go, I always do my research and look for hidden spots to taste local food- with noodles certainly being a priority.

After living in Shanghai for a while now, I can confidently say- I know where to go.

Nothing beats a hole in the wall, super local, super fresh hand made bowl of noodles.

I am always looking for an excuse to eat noodles, so I thought the best way would be to introduce travelers like you to my favorite spots. Join me!

Ook al woon ik al een tijdje in Shanghai, is er altijd meer te leren over de Chinese keuken. Ik koos voor deze tour vanwege mijn liefde voor noedels en ik werd helemaal niet teleurgesteld. Sophie nam ons mee naar 5 verschillende 'noodle shops' om verschillende noedels te proberen. Ze waren allemaal buitengewoon lekker! Bijkomend voordeel was het feit dat Sophie een hechte band heeft opgebouwd met de restauranteigenaren. De hele tour was super gezellig met Sophie samen. Echt een aanrader!

This tour is a must! I did this after being in Shanghai for about 2 weeks and doing many of the touristy and nontouristy things and loved it. I learned a lot about noodles as well as Chinese culture and history. Sophie created this tour for family and friends, which is exactly how you'll feel! All of the noodles were amazing! But the interaction with the local vendors really put the experience over the top. Sophie knows the people who work at the noodle shops and it shows they have a good relationship. If you're on the fence between this food tour and another, this is the one to try!

Sophie’s noodle tour was absolutely amazing! You get to go to hole-in-the-wall noodle restaurants you would never think to go yourself. So thank you so much for showing us where to get real noodles!

A wonderful way to learn and taste about Shanghai noodles. Sophie did a lot of research to design this tasting and I am so glad I did it! As a solo traveller, it's hard to taste so many different foods (you only have so many meals to try things), this tour let me try several things and learn from her about the history of the type of noodle. I highly recommend this experience!

Sophie's noodle tour was a highlight for us in Shanghai! Sophie expertly navigated the city, leading our group to five different stops to try her favorite noodles across town. The style and taste were varied in each location and it was clear that Sophie has connected with the shop owners and chefs. We loved the fact that the shops were filled with locals, busy and bustling, and delicious! Each noodle was different and special in its own way, and Sophie was a dream to talk to about life in Shanghai. We had a great time eating our way across town, and can't thank Sophie enough for showing us the ropes!

Fue muy difícil encontrar comida que me agradara durante todo el viaje. Dejé esta experiencia para el final y me pareció que valió mucho la pena. Probamos varias cosas, 5 tipos de noodles diferentes. Y si bien no todos eran exquisitos, los que sí lo eran valían la pena el tour. Además la experiencia de comer en lugares donde no hay extranjeros (solo en un lugar pude ver turistas) y donde la experiencia muy auténtica se vive en primera fila. Lo recomiendo. A lo mejor uno podría poner en duda la experiencia porque Sophie no es china pero lleva viviendo ahí algunos años, y además de hablar chino es apasionada por la comida y eso es lo más importante.
