What is going on in this picture?

Maybe it will help if I show you another…

Here, let me zoom in a bit.

Doctors, maybe?

Workers in a microchip plant? Bee keepers? Nope. All those guesses are wrong.

That thing in the lower left foreground might help you figure it out.

They are…dumpling makers!

Yup, they’re churning them out as fast as they can make them at the world famous Din Tai Fung in Beijing. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go to China this time; it was only H who went.

Apparently, Din Tai Fung (I just like saying the name) is world famous and found in many other locations too.

H said that the Hairy Crab Dumpling was the best. It’s filled to the brim (or the dumpling equivalent of a brim) with liquid (and presumably hairy crab too) and it’s boiling hot. So you have to exercise quite a lot of caution when eating it.

He didn’t get any pictures of the dumplings, but other folks have posted lots of pictures and reviews. 美味
