Vancouver Foodie Tours Announces The Authentic Asian Eats Tour
 – A New Walking Food Tour in Richmond, BC for 2020 – 

An Insider’s Guide to World-Class Chinese Cuisine

The Authentic Asian Eats Tour is for adventurous foodies looking for a fun and accessible experience of Richmond’s world-renowned Chinese food culture. During the 4-hour walking food tour of Richmond’s restaurant district, Vancouver Foodie Tours provides insider access to authentic and delicious Chinese dishes, and helpful tips on navigating the language and cultural barriers that exist.

Richmond is filled with authentic Chinese restaurants, with more than 70 eating establishments over just three blocks. From Hong Kong-style cafes to Chinese barbeque stalls, Asian food courts to dim sum institutions, guests receive a personal introduction to a rich Chinese food culture that is hailed by food lovers as the best outside of China.

Founded by Michelle Ng “from a love of food and people,” Vancouver Foodie Tours’ newest experience takes place right in her backyard. Michelle and her family have called Richmond home for over 30 years. Designing the Authentic Asian Eats Tour alongside Michelle is Lydia Lai, a veteran Foodie Tour Guide, local chef, restauranteur, and Richmondite.


The Authentic Asian Eats Tour launches on May 1, 2020

Food and culture enthusiasts can secure a seat on the Authentic Asian Eats Tour starting January 2020 on

“Over the years, many people have asked us to host Foodie Tours in Richmond. Between the language barrier and lack of information online, people just don’t know where to start.

To all of you who not-so-gently-nudged us, who waited patiently, and who supported the journey that brought us here – thank you! We are so excited to *finally* open the world’s eyes and palate to the wonders of Richmond and look forward to showing you the best in Richmond in 2020!”

– Joyce Chua, Special Projects Manager
