Sure, doing a little hot yoga or taking a lot of anything people offer you inside XOYO, will definitely get your heart rate going. But trust us, so will seeing a stack of bamboo steamers coming your way at Beijing Dumpling. As soon as you walk into this casual little spot on Lisle Street you'll want to place an order of pork xiao long bao, huge seafood dumplings, and bright green vegetable wontons. It’s always a good idea to go heavy on the dumplings here, but they also serve things like dan dan noodles, rice dishes, and some excellent garlic prawns.
