The lady in charge of cooking at the Hsu-Ji ShiDa night market stall efficiently lines the oiled flat pans with tight rings of 生煎包  (shengjianbao), sprays water to cook the twisted knot at the top of the bun, and then expertly casts sesame seeds over the whole thing before divvying the pan-fried dumplings into batches of five and twelve. As soon as each pan of the pork and soup-filled shengjianbao is finished, another batch of just-assembled dumplings comes ready to be cooked. Next to the heat plates sits the rest of the Hsu-Ji team, kneading and wrapping as quickly as they can to keep up with the demand.
