Gou Bu Li steamed stuffed bun is a traditional and delicious Chinese food. It first appeared in Tianjin in 1858, under the reign of Emperor Xian Feng of the Qing Dynasty. Gou Bu Li means the inventor -- nicknamed Gou Zi (puppy)-- was so busy selling his steamed stuffed buns that he had no time to answer questions from his customers.
There is a Gou Bu Li restaurant on Dongdan North Street. Their steamed stuffed bun is very tasty, and prices are very inexpensive.
One meal of steamed stuffed bun costs only RMB 13 or RMB 15. It includes 9 buns, some home-made pickles, and some mung bean porridge.
