Over the course of 3 hours, youll enjoy more than 15 tastings at three seated stops. Youll start with an edible history lesson, learning about Genghis Khan while dip-cooking meat and vegetables at the Mongolian-style hotpot that his army of fierce warriors invented. Youll pair that with baijiu, the worlds most consumed spirit, and local beer, as well as hand-stuffed boiled dumplings and the citys famed sauced meat a delectable local snack passed down through the ages.

Just through the hutong, youll sample grilled kebabs made by a displaced Chinese Muslim population from the countrys far northwest. Youll also sink your teeth into the citys cant-miss street food: jianbing (Chinese crepe), local donkey burgers and jarred yogurt, before finishing up at a patriotic family-run chicken wing joint that does Beijingers proud.
