Mr. Shi’s Dumplings is famous. Possibly more famous among foreigners. They have a few locations and we went to this one sort of near the Drum and Bell Towers. And the dumplings were delicious! We opted for fried over steamed and we got some that had cheese as part of the filling (very much for the foreigners). Absolutely delicious! So good! We even got Squidgems to try some!
This Mr. Shi’s is in a hutong neighborhood (one filled with a lot of hipsters) so we had a little exploring trying to find it, and then trying to find our way to a different subway stop to get home.
