Shaomai (Steamed Pork Dumplings)

Shaomai are a traditional food that are still very popular in Hohhot. Most visitors from other cities like to eat it when they come to the city.

Shaomai are made in a very unique way, with the ingredients being carefully selected. It looks like a small round cookie when placing on the plate and a thin bag when picking up with chopsticks. Their skin is as thin as a cicada's wing, and they’re stuffed with well-marbled mutton, making them delicious but not greasy.

They were mainly eaten at teahouses for breakfast in Hohhot, but have now become a staple food in restaurants and the home.
