Ever wished dumplings had exteriors to match their mysteriously exciting fillings? Then head to Baoyuan for a healthful rainbow of dumplings, their dough dyed with vegetable and fruit such as spinach, carrot, blueberry and grape. The dumplings are wrapped in a yuanbao (silver ingot) shape, and are larger and fuller than crescent-shaped dumplings. An order of six dumplings is generally under RMB 10 – and scrumptious. Particularly creative vegetarian options pack in smoked beancurd, celery, mushrooms, eggs, chives, cabbage, carrots and cellophane noodles. Tables are often full but turnover is high, so you won't have to wait too long. Traditionally dressed waitstaff are a bit overly attentive, but accommodating.

User reviews of Baoyuan Dumplings 宝源饺子屋
Compared to other locations it has no special design but the food is good. Try coloured jiaozi with different fillings, fried soy egg rice or fried green beans. We love to go there with all our visitors...
A good selection of dumplings of the pork and non-pork variety. I tend to stick with the beef and seafood variety but every dumpling I've had here does the job. I highly recommend this place for some local Beijing comfort food done well.
We come here almost every month with our kids and we all love the dumplings. But there is other food which is very tasty aswell, e.g. Gong bao ji ding and the vegetables are very good. I hate to pay the overpriced restaurants for not really delicious food here it is the other way round, great food and really cheap prices.
I've spent a lot of time eating jiaozi. First when I was in Shanghai and now here in Beijing. For sure, the dumplings from these places aren't the same but I've come to love those from the north more. And, IMHO, there are no better dumplings in this city than than those at Baoyuan. Yes, the dumplings at Xiao lao man are also very good. But they don't have the variety, customer service and thin dumpling skins that Baoyuan does. Baoyuan also feels more family run - something I definitely appreciate. Truth is, both places are great but to me this one is better.
