On this Hutung(alley) in the Xidan district you find this popular tourist stop. No frills, no fancy nothing, just dumplings to satisfy any taste. I love the pork and scallion variety. Its not the cheapest dumplings in Beijing but its a fun place, so enjoy!!

Delish Lotus and Beef Dumplings - go for the boiled ones, and the extra Chinese veggies. Located in the Hutong area of Beijing.

We keep coming back to Mr. Shi's for the pork and chive dumplings, as well as their amazing version of the Chinese green beans. If only I could learn how to make their version.

A lovely little dumpling restaurant. Location was very easy to find, 74 Baochang Hutong. This is a lovely, unassuming place, minimum decor and graffiti on the wall(signatures and messages from previous diners) It has a small sitting capacity, possibly 16-20 at a time but that's...More

We visited this shop on the recommendations here. The service was poor and their dumplings are less than par. Given the reviews here, I think it is over rated. You are better served eating elsewhere.
