Gāotāng Húndūn

Dumplings in Túnxī

Duck down a little alley opposite 120 Lao Jie for what is essentially an ancient food cart inside an even more ancient Qing dynasty home – run by a 12th-generation húndūn (wonton) seller and his family. The speciality is obviously the wontons, made to order and with super-thin skin, though there are other dishes, like fried jiǎozi (stuffed dumplings), on the menu too.
