Dumpling Banque - Jiaozi Banquet

Jiaozi are Chinese dumplings. They consist of various ingredients wrapped in a thin dough covering. Jiaozi can be found throughout China, but the ones in Xi'an are special. The Jiaozi served in a Jiaozi banquet are made of only the finest ingredients and come in an unbelievable variety. There are also several cooking styles for the Jiaozi, steamed, fried, and boiled. The appearance of Xi'an's Jiaozi set them apart from Jiaozi found in other parts of China.

The Jiaozi served in the Banquet are works of art. The Jiaozi in Xi'an's Jiaozi Banquets can look like butterflies, penguins, leaves, goldfish, ducks, golden ingots, flowers, clouds, and pearls. Many visitors find it hard to eat them until they try their first one. Once they find how amazing the Jiaozi are they have no problem eating the little works of art.

Basically, 32 different types of dumplings for each customer, but if one would like to taste more, there are also a lot of options, more than 120 types are waiting for diners.
