Great dumplings in Beijing and Shanghai

When I was on tour in China in January, 2013, I had some wonderful dumplings and noodles. The Grand Hyatt Beijing is connected to a shopping mall, and the two lower levels are food courts. One of the cheapest places I found was a very simple dumpling place and it was fantastic.

First order of soup dumplings.


First order of pot stickers.


Second order of both.


In Shanghai I went to the "old part" of the city and found in the touristy area a bit of a dive. I had pot stickers, egg rolls and noodles. The egg rolls weren't very good, but the pot stickers and noodles were quite good. They prepared the noodles on a flat grill.

    Looks good, David. I regularly go to some dim sum places nearby (there are several major Chinese population areas nearby). What were prices like for the potstickers and soup dumplings in China?

    I think in Shanghai it might have been a bit pricier, but at the food court in the Beijing mall they were pretty cheap. I really don't remember, but I would say both places were fairly inexpensive.
