The eatery is at the opposite of the Marriott Hotel at Jiaochangkou, the entrance connects to a small staircase, and it is small in size. It is said that the shop-owner enjoys online games and often plays late into night, that’s why they open this 24 hours eatery.
Each chaoshou, or wanton, is large in size, and the chili pepper oil smells flavorful and looks delicious, bringing back your lost appetite in no time. The wrapped dough is adequate in its thickness, which taste extremely good with large chunks of meats. Dumplings with leek and pork taste also great.

The restaurant has been there for decades, right at the back of Huangjueping Center Street Bus Stop. The thin noodle used in its suanlafen, or Hot and Sour Sweet Potato Noodles, is custom-made and the suanlafen tastes sour as a whole, with medium spiciness. Maybe it is because that they want to offer food to those who come home late that they open the 24 hours eatery on the Huangjueping Street.
