Chinese Dumpling Night

A new Chinese dumpling place opened up in Jungang Market near my house and we've been wanting to check it out for a while. Finally on Tuesday we decided to check it out.

Inside they have a very small seating area. Most people get take out, but they do have some soups, including a Chinese style dog meat soup for those who are looking to try a different preparation of man's best friend.

Here's our side dishes.

First we got some steamed dumplings. They were only 500 won each.  The ones in the back are similar to 왕만두 and the ones in the front are actually just steamed bread with no filling. We were a little disappointed by this fact...

Then we got some boiled dumplings which were also quite good. This plate was 5,000 won (2,500 per portion).

Jungang market at Sindang Station (line 2/6) is a good place to find real Chinese food, actually. There aren't many restaurants like this, but there are quite a few grocery stores that sell imported Chinese rice, noodles, liquor, along with other ingredients essential for Chinese cooking. If you're a fan of cooking authentic Chinese food and are looking for the right ingredients, this might be a good place to look.


  1. Boiled Dumplings look great, not to be eaten sans hot sauce, tho ;)

  2. they told us to mix some vinegar, soy sauce and chili powder. Is that normal in China? We suspect this is Dungbei style since that's where many chinese immigrants in China come from.

  3. Hi lovely, is jungang market still in Sindang area? Tried googling but there are very few posts on jungang market. Thanks! :D

  4. thanks! Yes it's still in sindang. It's my old neighborhood, it's one of the best places in Seoul! I have a few posts about it on the blog
