This sheng jian restaurant opened in December 2009, and is a five-minute walk from the north exit of Jiyugaoka Station. Using a recipe inherited from the long-established Shanghai sheng jian shop Asan Sheng Jian Kan, the soup bubbling within the thin skin of these dumplings has a light, clear flavour. This restaurant serves other dishes, such as soup, and they have also started offering a range of Chinese starters from 5pm. There are tables where you can stand and eat, making it possible to eat in. The shop is opposite the Hara Donuts Jiyugaoka store.
