About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Muslim Quarter, West of Bell Drum Towers Square , Beilin District, Xi'an 710000 China

Make your way down food-focused havens like Muslim Street,gather around tables in local restaurants,with an experienced private guide for an authentic experience of local Chinese cuisine and the rich culture of old Xi'an.including 5-10 samples of dishes sure to satisfy your appetite.

1.Suantang Jiaozi Sour and Spicy Dumplings

These are some of the best dumplings you will ever eat. They are stuffed plump with beef and garlic chives and poured steaming hot into a bowl of vinegar, chili oil, sesame, cilantro, and garlic. When you bite into one and the juice pops into your mouth, you will feel the true soul of Xi’an in your mouth and never want to leave!

2.Yangrou Paomo Lamb And Pita Soup

You really have to try this one. There are two ways to get your paomo. You can either get a fresh pita bread unbroken, and break it into your empty bowl, then hand it back to the chef, which he will then add into the wok and cook for you, or, you can get it pre-broken up.

3.Hula Tang Peppery Beef Ball Soup

The hulatang is a classic Hui street food found on a lot of corners in the Hui district of Xi’an. The first time I tried it, I was surprised by how numbing the flavour was. The Sichuan peppercorn they add into the thick porridge like broth gives it a real kick, and when you add chili oil in as well, it’s quite spicy!

4.Delicious Lamb and Beef Kebabs

Eating BBQ lamb kebabs on the streets of Xi’an late at night is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable things you can do in the city. In the Huiminjie area there are many late night kebab joints,where the cumin and chili mix is perfect and where they also serve you these beautiful wide nang breads also put on the BBQ and covered in spice.

5.Amazing Liangpi Joint's in Xi'an

Liangpi is one of Xi’ans most satisfying flavour combos. Thick sesame paste is paired with hot chili oil and cold jelly noodles with vinegar to give you a sour, spicy, nutty, refreshing slurp that will bring you into another dimension.

6.Babaozhou Cold and Sweet Porridge

This is one of the most refreshing things you’ll ever put in your mouth. It’s essentially a cold rice porridge with seeds, nuts, and dried fruits.

7.Zenggao sticky rice and date cake

The zenggao is my favourite Xi’an dessert. It’s made with sticky rice, dates, and beans, and it’s super sweet and filling. You can find it all around the huiminjie district. I found one offered by a man selling it from a giant tricycle! It was super delicious!


The jinggao is another of Xi’an’s best desserts, made from sticky rice, rose jam, and some nuts. It’s very cheap for one stick, and is found all over the huiminjie area.

After the tour, you can continue the tour or go back to the hotel for a rest.
