Shui jiao are small dumplings filled with meat (often pork), and in Chengdu they usually are served in soup or tossed in red oil, like the famous Zhong Shui Jiao. I used to really like the shui jiao at Chun Yang Shui jiao, which is in the courtyard of the yellow and blue Golden Hawaii building on Xi Da Street:

This time the dumplings' filling didn't taste as fresh as usual and the servers could barely be bothered to take and deliver orders though it was just after one o'clock. Will probably go up the street to Xiao Tan Dou Hua for shui jiao next time.
