“Great dumplings... but only one serving size”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

It took my friends and I forever to find this place (it is not at 120 Zhonghua rd as listed by trip advisor), but worth the trip!

10 great dumplings for a cheap price of 60 yuan. No option for more dumplings unless you want to double your dinner! The restaurant is otherwise clean and simple.

“Simple & Pleasant Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The simple shop served only one type of dumpling in 2 sizes - big or small. The dumplings came in a clear soup base. It was quite tasty and made for a light meal if you don't want anything too heavy!

The shop had a long history with lots of media info on its owners and the famous people that came by to try the dumplings. But it won't be something I would come back again and again to eat.

“Awesome dumplings in Hualien”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I"m pretty sure this is the place that i went to... since i don't read Chinese I am guessing this is it since the place i went to was a famous dumpling house and this is a famous dumpling house. If you look at the attached picture it will have the information on it.... just show it to the cab driver.

as people mentioned it is only 60 .. approx $2USD to get a bowl which contains about 10 dumplings with some awesome soup. the service is really quick. there is only 1 item on the menu so they have this stream lined to a science.

it is 1/2 a block off the main shopping street.

enjoy!
