Jamie Barys, one half of the Culinary Backstreets Shanghai team, has been a resident of China for the past five years. A native of Tennessee, Jamie believes that the best way to get to know a culture is to eat your way through it. Whether she’s exploring Shanghai’s hidden hole-in-the-wall restaurants or sneaking back into kitchens to snag behind-the-scenes recipes, she’s always hungry for more. Never one to keep a good thing to herself, Jamie can be found leading culinary tours to delicious best-kept secrets with UnTour Shanghai, the city’s top-ranked food tour provider, when she isn’t writing about her tasty finds for Shanghai Talk, City Weekend and Culinary Backstreets.
After writing for business publications and editing translations for several years, Oregon native Kyle Patrick Long, the other half of the CB Shanghai team, settled on two topics he enjoys much more: food and travel. As a food and jogging guide for UnTour Shanghai, the city’s number one culinary and running tour provider, Kyle has seen and eaten just about all that the city has to offer. Thankfully, Shanghai is an ever-changing metropolis offering new streets and delicious treats to enjoy daily, leaving plenty of gems for Kyle to write about for publications such as Shanghai Talk and Culinary Backstreets.
