It's all about the dumplings Nov 13, 2013
Orient King of Dumplings (东方饺子王) is a chain of restaurants in Beijing with a number of locations throughout the city. They serve over 30 kinds of dumplings (jiaozi) depending on the filling: pork, beef, shrimp, cabbage, leek, eggplant and more in many combinations of ingredients too, such as Sam Sun dumplings (leek, shrimp and egg). They can be prepared in a few different ways too:

1.) Boiled dumplings (水餃; pinyin: shuǐjiǎo; literally "water dumpling") - like a soup

2.) Steamed dumplings (蒸餃; pinyin: zhēngjiǎo; literally "steam dumpling")

3.) Pan fried dumplings (鍋貼; pinyin: guōtiē; literally "pan stick") or also referred to as (煎餃; pinyin: jiānjiǎo; literally "dry-fried dumplings")

The dumplings themselves are not very large, but make a good mouthful and are served in generous quantity, so much so it's almost impossible to eat them all while still hot. The ingredients taste quite fresh and there are various sauces and oils for dipping too. It is said that some of the best Chinese dumplings in the world are to be had in Beijing in restaurants such as this one. The restaurants serve many other things too, but it's all about the dumplings here, as the restaurant name suggests. The price is very good for the quantity and quality too. I highly recommend a dumpling dining experience in Beijing!

As it is sometimes impossible to find such restaurants on your own if you are a Westerner, some guidance in directions is warranted: This restaurant is located at the corner of Zhongguancun S Street and Xueyuan South Road nearby the Weigongcun metro station (Subway Line 4). I give the addresses here in Mandarin, Pinyin and English for your reference:

Address in Chinese: 海淀区学院南路86号

Address in Pinyin: Hǎidiàn Qū Xuéyuàn Nán Lù 86 Hào (Qū = District; Xuéyuàn = College; Nán = South; Lù = Road; Hào = Number)

Address in English: 86 South College Road, Haidian District

I haven't had those dumplings for ages ... but you have reminded me of them. There are quite a few restaurants in Soho, London, that do them ... next time I'm there I may go for a dumpling lunch ...
