Yiliu Steamed Soup Bun Store is quite popular in Tong'an district and throughout Xiamen. Its steamed soup buns – a steamed bun filled with minced meat and gravy – are made by wrappers so thin that you can see the tasty broth flowing inside the dumplings.

The secret to the broth is the addition of pigskin jelly into the filling. When steamed, the jelly will melt into delicious gravy. Also, unlike steamed buns in China's Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, chopped scallions and ginger are added to create a superior taste.

Other recommended delicacies: sour bamboo shoot soup, horseshoe-shaped puff pastry, pig brains and pig hearts (if you can stomach that sort of thing)

Address: Second Yangcuo Road, Tong'an district
