Sōnghuājiāng Jiǎoziguǎn

Top choice dumplings in Chángshā

Not a romantic choice, this bustling eatery specialises in the mellow cuisine of northern China. Dumplings (饺子; jiǎozi) are the speciality and come in many varieties, including pork and chives (¥6), lamb and onion (¥8) and just pork (¥6). There are also tasty lamb kebabs (¥6) and fine beef-filled fried bread (¥8). There's a picture menu.

The dumplings are priced by the liǎng (两; 50g), which gets you six dumplings. You must order at least two liǎng (èr liǎng) of each type of dumpling and one portion is generally sufficient.
