Diverse Chaoshou hidden in Chongqing downtown
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- It is said that Chongqing people start a day with a bowl of Xiaomian (a kind of typical noodle in Chongqing). In fact, not everyone likes noodle; some favor Chaoshou (a kind of typical wonton in Chongqing). Everybody has his or her favorite Chaoshou. Today, we would like to recommend some popular Chaoshou restaurants in Chongqing.
Bai Chaoshou 掰抄手
Opposite to the Xiaolongkan Hotpot Restaurant, Bai Chaoshou is not hard to find. Small as it is, the restaurant is crowded. Its Chaoshou is very fresh and limited. So you’d better get there early every day. The stuffing of Chaoshou is fresh diced pork, sweet soup and scallion which is not only fragrant, but also very tongue-licking. What is worth mentioning is that you never want to stop once you eat their exclusive diced red pepper, spicy and fresh. Fortunately, you can buy it home to make Boiled Pig’s Feet with Diced Red Peppers and Steamed Crucian Fish with Diced Red Peppers.
Fee: 12 yuan per person
Address: No. 276, Xiaolongkan Center Street, Shapingba District
Jiang Chaoshou 蒋抄手
Lies in the bustling Three Gorges Square, it is concealed and needs to climb a long ladder to get there. Many different foods are available such as Chaoshou, noodle and fired dishes. The meat stuffing in the Chaoshou is so plump that several of it can fill your stomach. Laoma Chaoshou is the first recommendation. But those who dislike spicy food should think over before order it. As for Guoqiao Chaoshou, it will be more delicious after dipping sauce. Hence, you can control the volume of the sauce in respect of your favor. Eating a bite of Chaoshou, the perfect combination of smooth wrapper and the meat stuffing will leave fragrance in the mouth.
Fee: 14 yuan per person
Address: Beside the Xinshiji Shopping Mall, F2, Rongxin Building, Shapingba District (opposite the Jinying Women’s Street)
Chuanqi Chaoshou 传奇抄手
24-hour convenience stores are rather common in our daily life. Have you seen 24-hour Chaoshou restaurant? Only Chuanqi Chaoshou can warm you when all other stores are closed at the midnight. It looks that the red-oil Chaoshou can stimulate customers’ appetite for its fresh taste and big size. There is a layer of red oil on the surface, but it is not too spicy. The Pork Dumpling with Chinese Chives is also very yummy. The boss named it “Warcraft Dumpling” because he likes playing the game World of Warcraft.
Fee: 19 yuan per person
Address: No. 77, Qingnian Road, Yuzhong District (beside the JW Marriott Hotel)
Hui’s Chaoshou 惠氏抄手
Hui’s Chaoshou is located in the corner of the Jiaochangkou and near the Three Gorges Bank. Many people may just passed by it. The movie I Belonged to You once shot here. Majiang Chaoshou is 16 yuan every 50 gram which is a little expensive in Chongqing. There is no doubt that all the Chaoshou are fresh because they are wrapped by the boss himself. With little soup, small size and thin wrapper, the Chaoshou is rather delicious.
