Goubuli (狗不理,gǒubùlǐ),in Chinese Gou Bu Li means "dogs won't pay attention".

It's a famous brand of baozi from Tianjin, China. Founded in 1858, it is one of China's longest established brands.

We can't explain why this name ,perhaps the most common is that it comes from a childhood nickname of the founder, given to protect him from bad luck.

Another spinoff of the story says that Gao Gui, after the wild success of his baozi business, had less and less time to converse with his patrons, which led to a joke amongst the patrons that Gao Gui does not care about them, hence the name "Dog Won't Care".

According to tradition, the Empress Dowager Cixi was brought some Goubuli baozi by Yuan Shikai, who returned from Tianjin, and she pronounced them delicious, instantly adding to their fame.

A proper English name "Go believe"(sounds like Goubuli) was created for the restaurant recently.
