Haerbin Boiled Dumplings

Update: Sadly, as of 2015, this restaurant has closed after ten years at its previous location on Yulin Xi Lu.

For years the Haerbin Boiled Dumplings restaurant on Yulin Xi Lu has been a local favorite among residents in the neighborhood. Filled with happy patrons munching on dumplings at lunch and dinner time, this is among the most authentic restaurants in Chengdu that serve dumplings in the Northwestern style (named after the city of their origin, Haerbin). There are over half a dozen varieties of dumplings available, including pork, beef, and vegetable. Mix your own sauce!


Prices have risen in recent years at this dumpling shop due to increased popularity and a rise in material costs. There are over a dozen varieties of dumplings available, ranging from 5 to 15 yuan per 50 grams (called a liang in Chinese).


Address in Chinese: 成都玉林西路 #31

    Getting hungry thinking about this place. Used to come here all the time, but now we have a lady who makes dumplings by hand downstairs and we buy from her. Still can’t beat the authentic experience of Haerbin Dumplings though.

      I still visit this place regularly, especially on weekends. It is a famous and very well-trafficked restaurant in Yulin, and is often filled to capacity. It’s worth waiting for a seat though.

      My favorite type of dumplings here was the cilantro, but they took them off the menu since the price of cilantro has gone up so much. Hopefully that comes back. Until then, the Rousan Xian is delicious along with the Baicai.

      Yeah, this place is definitely pricey. I’m happy they brought back the cilantro (香菜) dumplings though!

      Why are things so expensive in Chengdu? Is it because it is more inland and not coastal?!

        Good question. This dumpling place is expensive in particular, but locals don’t seem to mind – at dinner time, it’s always full. It is noticeably more expensive than your average dumpling place in Chengdu.
