We are not another walking tour, we are a food adventure! Our top-rated China food tours use tuktuks to get you off the beaten path, truly away from the tourists, to eat where the locals eat. We take small groups to hidden, family-run shops where you can see your food being made and learn about the people that are making it. All while enjoying unlimited food, beer and zooming around small streets & alleyways to eat the best food at the most local places.

DON’T WALK. RIDE WITH US!



Why Choose Lost Plate:


Don’t Walk, Ride!

We use unique styles of transportation to give you an adventure, not just another walking tour. Our tuktuks get you away from the tourists, off the beaten path, to eat shoulder to shoulder with real locals. This means you’ll eat the best food in the city, not just one street! Our tuk-tuks accommodate 3-4 people (plus a cooler full of beer!) and our tours have a max size of 9, so you are guaranteed to have a personal experience.

Legit (Local) Guides

Only guides from each city can give you a real taste of the area, both in its food and its culture. We support the local community by hiring local guides and drivers that will make you feel like you left the day with a new friend. We can help you with your trip beyond just food, just ask. Meet Our Guides!

The Best Food & Drink

You aren’t going to find any other tourists at our hidden gems and you’re going to love the food. You’ll see how its made and learn about the families who make it. Most importantly, you won’t have to worry about what to order or how to communicate with the owners. Everything we eat is tried and tested, and therefore safe. Oh, and did we mention we provide unlimited beer and drinks?

What Our Guests Have Said:

“The Xian Evening Tour was the best thing I did in China, unforgettable and delicious. We went to fantastic little family-owned, local places to eat rather than all those tasteless tourist traps. The food was the best I’ve had in all of China in 3 weeks! Our guide was lovely, very friendly and full of information. I dream about the food! So delicious! “

“The Chengdu tour highlight for us was the dumplings – this was at a “home restaurant” in an apartment in a typical residential compound. It was simply the best dumplings I’ve ever had. Five different types, all homemade right there by the family. A truly unique experience and something we would never have found on our own.”
