Qingzhen Mu Xiang Yuan Restaurant
This restaurant is recommended by a friend. He said, this restaurant has been there ever since he was little, and until today, it has operated for more than 20 years. Because of his recommendation, we decided to go and try it out. When entering the restaurant, we noticed that there were many senior citizens eating there, generally they had a bowl of soup and a tray of shaomai (steamed open dumplings). We then decided to try the popular menus, and we immediately thought that the foods were comforting. Hence, now we're going to introduce the restaurant to you.
Beef soup / niǔ jīn tāng: 17RMB, free soup refill
At the first sip, we immediately realized how rich the soup was. The taste and aroma of the soup was just perfect, and there was an adequate amount of beef in it. The beef chunks were also very tender.
Besides beef soup, the restaurant's mutton soup (15RMB) is also one of the most popular menu. But because of our excitement towards the beef soup rose up at the moment we saw it coming to our table, we decided to keep the mutton soup for our next visit.
Big pieces of beef, how great this is!
Mutton shaomai / yáng ròu shāo mai: 15RMB
The wrapper of the shaomai was thin but somehow it was chewy. The mutton inside didn't have any goat smell at all, and it felt really fresh and juicy. Words will fail to describe how good it was! And the other variant of the shaomai is equally good, you need to also try out their beef shaomai for 15RMB.
Eat it while hot!
Scone / kǎo bǐng: 1RMB
Although the scone tastes plain, it really is a perfect companion for your beef soup. This is how you should eat: bowl of soup, a scone, end of discussion.
We ordered these and spent 50RMB for two persons, and felt full afterwards.

Yu Tai (Qin) Huimin Restaurant (Tianjin St. Shop)
Before giving out information about this restaurant, first we want to explain to you a little bit about its name. If you search for the restaurant through the internet, don't be surprised if the name "Yutai (裕泰)" shows up when it's clearly written as "Yuqin (裕秦)" at the restaurant door. It is said the restaurant was first registered as "Yutai (裕泰)", and then because of internal reasons the name was changed to "Yuqin (裕秦)". Although, many people in Dalian refer this restaurant as “Old Yutai”. First opened more than 20 years ago, its featured menu including Mutton Soup and Mutton Xiaomai have become its customers' favourites.
