Are you a foodie? Have you tried traditional Cantonese dim sum – The small plate experience, the chopsticks, the steam-heated carts, the stacked steamer baskets, the lively conversations? The Tea! Perhaps you’ve never had the opportunity to learn the immense history involved with dim sum from a Cantonese-American guide (dim sum = “to touch the heart!”).
This is your chance! For a limited time, you can join Wild Foodie Tours and enjoy a truly unique dining experience! We’ll brunch on Cantonese-style dim sum, served fresh from traditional push-carts & steamer baskets. You’ll learn about dim sum’s Silk Road roots, flavorful teas, and traditional Southern Chinese etiquette. You’ll pick and choose a variety of classic dim sum specialties like barbecue pork buns, rice crepes, siu mai, and egg tarts — and become touched by the heart!
After the meal, we’ll take you on a walking tour through the heart of Asia-town and end at a popular Asian supermarket for some quick shopping. Perfect tour for those seeking a truly unique experience. Trip length of 2½ hours with a walking distance of 1½-2 miles. Only $69 per person! Sundays at 10:00 am. **Gluten free and limited vegetarian options are available.
You get: a Chinese-American tour guide who specializes in Chinese cuisine, insight into dim sum culture and history, a traditional dim sum brunch with tea at the premier dim sum restaurant in San Diego, an Asian supermarket and bakery shopping excursion.
