A ¡®Shaomai¡¯ is a steamed dumpling with the dough gathered at the top. It is characterized by its thin ring and is full of stuffing.
Duyichu is a historic restaurant opened by Mr. Wang Ruifu from the Shanxi province in 1738 A.D., under the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing dynasty. The title Duyichu was given to the restaurant by Emperor Qianlong himself. Originally, the restaurant was located at No. 36, Qianmen Street.
Today, you can find the Duyichu Shaomai Restaurant at Fangzhuang, Beijing. There, one share of Shaomai costs RMB 18. Roast duck is on the menu as well for RMB 68. The dining environment is very agreeable.
