Our Chengdu Food Tour Reviews
100% LOCAL GUIDES
“Lost Plate stood out because the guides are 100% local (not expats) – they grew up here, they know the city inside and out, and they rigorously search out, test, and compare the restaurants they end up choosing, selecting places that are authentic, best-of-category tastes, and a true representation of Chengdu’s finest. Lost Plate went above and beyond to plan a fun, authentic, exciting, accessible, and memorable evening!!”
– Alexandra S from Calgary, via TripAdvisor
“It’s safe to say that tourists such as ourselves would never wander into these neighborhoods much less overcome the language barrier to order these delicious dishes. A tour with Lost Plate left us with more than full stomachs, it also left us with a sense that is all too rare in tourism these days, we left the tour feeling connected to strangers we’ve never met before that day. We learned about the pride they have in each of the dishes they served us. For a brief moment, we felt like we can understand their lives with all its rewards as well as its obstacles.”

WHY CHOOSE LOST PLATE
FOOD TOURS LED BY LOCALS
We are not a tasting tour, we promise you will have plenty of food! The best part? You won’t have to worry about what to order or how to communicate with the owners at each stop. Everything we eat is tried and tested, plus you’ll see how its made and learn about the families who make it.
OFF THE BEATEN PATH
We visit local neighborhoods where real locals live and eat. You aren’t going to find any other tourists here. Our restaurants are locally owned and often specialize in only one dish, which means the quality is high and the flavor is even better. These places wouldn’t survive without regulars, that’s how you know it’s good.
AUTHENTIC FOOD & BEER
You don’t need to worry about what or how to order, but you’ll learn about the families who own each shop and how they prepare each dish. All of our evening tours include unlimited beer during the tour and a stop at a local bar to sip some local craft beer or wine.
Our tours in Beijing, Chengdu and Xian use private tuktuks to 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!
