Nánfāng Dà Bāo

Dumplings in Hangzhou

Who would have thought the humble bāozi could taste so good? The fluffy steamed buns served at this small corner stand near the Rénhé Hotel building are simply huge, and come with either pork or a sweet bean filling. The pork ones are sensational, with top-quality meat and a rich gravy. Queues stretch right down the street in the morning.
