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.
No event here now.
User reviews of Baoyuan Dumplings 宝源饺子屋
My parents have been in town visiting and after a long day in the Tianamen area we took the hike over herre for some filling and fulfilling dumplings. They really enjoyed it and we will probably be back before they leave. For foreign visitors I consider it an "entry level" introduction to Beijing food meaning it's none risky, none exotic food but just really good dumplings done really well. Beijing has tons of great local options and these guys are always towards the top of my list for casual, semi-friendly, laid back local food.
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.
