After visiting the Great Wall, we ate like kings. I was with my new Chinese acquaintance and an American, Tom. Together we ate shrimp, fish, lamb, and Chinese dumplings. The dumplings were by far my favorite because they were fresh. The texture of the bread was unlike any I had had prior. For that reason alone I recommend eating Chinese dumplings in only one place — China. That said, food is best where it comes from. So travel, eat, and repeat.
