Beijing's Best Staple Food (Zhushi)
Beijingers are famous for their love of zhushi (staple foods) such as steamed dumplings and buns, and hand-pulled noodles. While a few specialty restaurants are worth trying, many delicious samples can be bought from street vendors, noodle bars, and nameless hole-in-the-wall snack shops.

Dumplings, Dumplings, Dumplings!

Large arrow left

After visiting the Yonghe (Lama) Temple in Beijing, stop and enjoy fresh made dumplings. This gem is located at Beixinqiao 1st alley, which is near the Beixinqiao northeast station exit. You will love the variety they offer (and the price). If I were to go back, I would definitely have some for take out.
