Zhongshui dumplings are one of the famous traditional snacks of the Han nationality in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. Beginning in the 19th year of Guangxu, the founder Zhong Shaobai, the original store was called "Xie Senmao", and in 1931 the sign of "Litchi Lane Zhong Shui Dumplings" began to be hung. Known at home and abroad for its unique flavor, it has been awarded the titles of "Chinese Time-honored Brand", "Chinese Famous Snacks" and "Green Catering Enterprise" by the Ministry of Internal Trade of China, the Chinese Cooking Association, and the National Catering Green Engineering Committee. In terms of materials, the main difference between boiled dumplings and northern boiled dumplings is that they are all filled with pork and no other fresh vegetables are added. When served, they are topped with special red oil, which is slightly sweet and salty, both spicy and unique. The dumplings have a sweet taste.
