Shichen (Right time) Steamed Dumplings

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/2

The dumplings taste fragrant, fresh but not greasy. The history of making steamed dumplings in Weinan dates back to the 18th century. However, they were not called Shichen Steamed Dumplings until 1903 when a man named Zhang Kun began to make and sell steamed dumplings. His steamed dumplings were so delicious that many people stood in line to buy them. The steamed dumplings were sold out after 10 o’clock every morning. So people called them “right time” steamed dumplings because they should go early there to buy them. The steamed dumplings are in the shape of a monk’s hat and the bottom part is golden.
