If you think dumplings are just occasional snack food, think again. De Fa Chang, one of Xian's most famous restaurants, is known for its dumpling banquet. Do try the pan-fried guotie, stuffed with pork and chives. For the dumpling banquet, head upstairs and choose between the preset menus. Considerably cheaper à la carte dishes can be found downstairs; just grab a plate as a cart passes by your table and be ready to pay on the spot.
