Made on the spot soup dumplings. Order and pay before grabbing a seat. Go a basket or two per person of the original meat dumplings (it sells out by afternoon) and if you’re daring, the duck blood soup. Absolute value for money!

Long wait in line. Not worth the wait. Dirty and not very good dumplings. Specially pork and other ingridiences have strong flavors that you may not like.

Try the crab dumpling, 12 piece for less than CNY 40, very worth it. It is juicy and the juice spill therefore they gave a small saucer for the customer. Even my boy who do not like dumpling enjoys it.

The taste of the dumplings is nothing to rave about. Not sure why the queue. The food is seriously overrated. In addition, have to bear the rudeness and impatience of the elderly woman at the front counter. It is a sign of complacency.

Great place to eat. Make sure you turn up early or they will sell out of their dumplings. There will be a queue.

Foreign cards are usually no good in local restaurants. Do carry some cash with you if you intend to go 'local'. :)
