Mention dumplings to any local in Bangkok and they will point you towards Yong He Dou Jian. This simple eatery located just below the stairs of the Chong Nonsi Skytrain Station is not only easy to get to, it provides plenty of inexpensive and mouth watering treats. While dumpling aficionados might argue about whether or not nearby Hong Teong Long is better or not (both places are truly outstanding), the menu here does seem a bit more extensive. Dumplings aside, the mutton noodle soup is a real winner, filled with savory broth and soft noodles, and the pork and beef pancake rolls are more akin to a western sandwich, dense and meaty, as are the burger resembling Chinese pork pies. Another nice feature here are the small trays of appetizer like dishes that they bring to your table to choose from, with items such as kimchi, various seaweed and pickled vegetables, and other bite size delectable snacks to complement your meal. The fried chrysanthemum are the best greens in the house, and the management is proud to push their hearty black bean soy milk on those who have any room left.
- Chinese: "best to come here with a large group so as to sample from the extensive menu. Take the BTS Skytrain to Chong Nonsi and exit on the northwest side, and you will find the restaurant just 50 meters ahead on the left."
- Best for Chinese Because: For delicious and affordable Taiwanese style dumplings and plenty more, Yong He Dou Jiang is a guaranteed treat.
