If the signs outside are any guide, Mr Shi certainly seems to be proud of his dumplings. With curious fillings like beef and cheese as well as more traditional pork and leek, Mr Shi has name a name for himself as a clever brander - if albeit as an exploitative dumpling slinger.

Dumplings come boiled or fried but expect to throw down a small fortune for what usually passes for every-man staple fare. Not a destination that bears repeat visits, but good for new arrivals and visitors looking for a more sanitised version of local Beijing cuisine.

Venue name: Mr Shi's Dumplings
Opening hours: 10.30am-10.30pm daily.
