Good Eats, Friday Night

Steamed pork and cabbage dumplings

Mmmm…dumplings. Did I get your attention? One of our favorite cafes is hidden in an alleyway between Baiyang Road and Longhui Road in Jinqiao. We’ve been there several times and it’s always packed with locals, day and night. They make everything from scratch, including dumpling skins, thin flatbreads and noodles.

Making hand-pulled noodles.

Shredded pork buns.

The Circus calls these “Chinese hamburgers.” Thin flatbreads stuffed with roasted, shredded pork.

Fried beef noodles.

Hand-pulled noodles, stir-fried into deliciousness.


In Chinese culture, the louder the slurp, the bigger the compliment. Slurp! We practice good manners in China.

Tonight’s dinner: 86RMB of happiness. The best part? I didn’t have to cook. Thank you, Hubs.

  1. Oh, Yummmy food. Did you hear fire crack or firework starts again for Lantern Festival, also known as Yuanxiao Festival? eating yuanxiao (sweet stuffed dumplings made of glutinous rice flour served in soup)? on the fifteenth day of the first lunar month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar (February 17th, 2011). During this festival Chinese enjoy the full moon if you can see it and beautiful lanterns everywhere. I think this time firework will end sooner then the New Year’s. :) xoxo

  2. I heart Boo. I heart hand-pulled noodles. I heart Boo eating hand-pulled noodles with chopsticks! I cannot wait to enjoy Friday Night Eats with everyone! Loves.
