Since the beginning of time, rice dumplings have been a quintessential element at the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival. Each year, Chinese across the country make rice dumplings to honor Qu Yuan. He is a patriotic poet whose sacrifice was the impetus for this famous festival. Rice dumplings vary in shapes and flavors -- with Quanzhou famous for its special version. Dong Jie Zhong Lou's Rice Dumpling Restaurant is located in Quanzhou. The family-owned business has weathered more than a century of economic ups and downs. It is now managed by the family's fourth generation.
