Chūn Hé Lóu

Shandong in Qingdao

In the old quarter of town, this Lǔ (Shāndōng) cuisine institution was founded in 1891 and makes legendary pot stickers (锅贴; guōtiē) and crispy, fragrant chicken (香酥鸡; xiāngsū jī). The top-floor tables have the most atmosphere and get the full attention of the chefs. Downstairs is a fast-food version, with a takeaway counter for dumplings.
