This authentic Dongbei joint has an impressive 21 bustling branches around the city - a testament to their terrific, hearty food. Try the house specialty: cabbage and pork (baichai rouxian) or beef (niurouxian) dumplings (5-6RMB/six).

Other delectable dishes are the savoury, roast dinner-like chicken (xiang su ji, 35RMB); and Dongbei standards like disanxian (potato, green pepper and eggplant, 16RMB). Best enjoyed in a large group (book at weekends), you can easily feast for 30RMB a head.
