Lanzhou Empanadería is very close to Madrid Río and is the big brother of a tiny Chinese restaurant specializing in dumplings not far from here (Tres Cerditos).
But Lanzhou is not only bigger in size, its menu is too. In Tres Cerditos they only offer 3 or 4 dishes in addition to dumplings and here there are many more.
You will come to Lanzhou to eat dumplings, noodles and some typical stuffed crepes from their region of origin in China. And a few more dishes like fish balls or wantun soup, omelette rice, etc.
The dumplings are steamed, grilled or in soup and can be made with vegetables, beef, lamb, pork, taro or prawns. The noodles are made dry and in soup, with a multitude of garnishes as well. You can order the stuffed crepes with vegetables, bacon, ham, pork, chicken or duck. Everything is homemade.
It might seem that the offer is not very varied, but the dishes are large, the food tasty and the prices low; a combination that will make you leave there with a big smile.
