Delicious Dumplings in the Hutongs

[ From: Maggie Cheung | Published: 2008-02-28 Views: 1772 | Booked times: 59 ]

If youre interested in strolling around the Back Lake area while exploring Beijing, I recommend a nice eatery which offers traditional Chinese snacks nearby the Gulou area. Its name is HuntunHou (⽺): Huntun is a kind of traditional dish similar to dumplings. Hou is a Chinese family name.

 

A well-known chain eatery, HuntunHou attracts repeat customers C a good indication of the quality of their food. The eatery I visited was full, with a large percentage of foreign patrons.

 

The eatery is decorated in a traditional style: wooden furniture, ancient design. The counter is in the back. Tables and chairs are cleaned after each client.

 

On the menu, Huntun, Baozi, porridges, and other traditional dishes are offered at reasonable prices. Huntun and Baozi are two sorts of dumplings. I ordered a kind of Baozi named Xianguroubao (㹽) and a bowl of Huntun. Each serving is comprised of 3 Baozi, made of pork and mushrooms. Their taste is delicious. Huntun is the eaterys hallmark dish. The main ingredient of the stuffing is meat, and the difference between Huntun and Jiaozi (another type of dumplings) is that the former is served with a delicious soup.

 

According to the restaurant personnel (who do not speak English), foreign visitors appreciate the traditional dishes, especially Huntun.

 

A meal will cost you between RMB 15 and RMB 50.

 

What I appreciated:

Huntun dumplings, delicious food, reasonable prices

 

What customers appreciate:

Delicious taste, reasonable prices
