Lao Li, the eccentric manager of What? Bar, two doors from here, swears by the boiled dumplings (zheng jiao) in this simple restaurant.
They come by the basket and are perfect for lining your stomach before you delve into the cheap beer at What?
You can also get fluffier, steamed dumplings here for same price (¥5 per basket) as well as soups and various noodle dishes.
