Famous restaurant for Kaifeng’s baozi Sep 22, 2017
N34°47'42.5" E114°20'45.9" (WGS-84) On Sihou Jie number 9, not 43 according to the Rough Guide, this restaurant is famous for Kaifeng’s own take on the humble baozi; flat and circular, they look a little like wagon wheels. The ones served here are utterly delectable, though often take up to 30 minutes to prepare. There are six different varieties available, of which the seafood (haimi) for RMB25 are the tastiest. Dumplings aside, there is a full menu of Chinese staples to choose from if you can read and speak Chinese.

Communicating with hand signals and smartphone translator in August 2017, we ordered spinach with garlic, fish soup with small fish and ten pieces of seafood baozi. The fish soup was spicy with coriander, resulting in a lovely combination of flavours. The spinach with garlic was great. After 30 minutes waiting, the baozi haimi arrived, which tasted excellent. We enjoyed the food.

Diyi Lou restaurant is divided in a left and right section. The guests in the left section, probably paying more, are entertained with live performances of Chinese singers at high volume. The guests in the right section have to withstand the volume, but it does not detract them from the excellent food on offer. Recommended.
