Directions to Dumpling Yuan
Despite being in one of the most posh and expensive districts in all of Hong Kong, complete with a prime real estate location (with one of the highest rents in the world!), this dumpy little eatery offers rock bottom prices for good, simple, Beijing style food.
The reason to visit this small, dimly lit, and bustling dumpling joint is definitely for the authentic, delicious food, not the loud ambience, cramped space, or the fact that it’s not the cleanest. A large table in the middle of the restaurant seats 9, which may or may not be people you know.
The food is simple, authentic Beijing style, nothing too fancy. The portions are relatively small, but for the price and the location, it’s very reasonable. With clientele ranging from grungy tourists to Gucci-clad CEOs, this place is famous, not surprisingly, for its selection of dumplings. They have an entire page on their menu specifically to showcase this specialty, with all sorts of fillings, from traditional veggie and pork, to beef and even lamb. They also have other simple Pekinese dishes, including vegetarian noodles, marinated cucumbers, and chilled Pork and Garlic.
They conveniently have another branch just across Wellington Street if this one is full.
Expect to pay HKD 40-60 for lunch and dinner.
Closest MTR: Central, exit D2.
