Din Tai Fung
We had lunch at the incredible Din Tai Fung restaurant today....Amazing!
Some background...Din Tai Fung is an award-winning restaurant originating in Taiwan, specialising in xiaolongbao (small steamed buns). Outside its native Taiwan, Din Tai Fung also has its restaurant chains in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, the United States, and Thailand. In addition to dumplings, Din Tai Fung is also known for their chicken soup, seaweed, bean sprouts, and mung bean noodle xiaochi. In November 2009, the restaurant at its Tsim Sha Tsui location was awarded one Michelin star by the Hong Kong and Macau 2010 edition of the Michelin Guide. In 1993, Din Tai Fung was ranked as one of the world's top 10 restaurants by The New York Times.
Well we skipped the xialongbao but we had pork dumplings, pork and shrimp pot stickers, fried rice with pork steak and braised beef soup with chinese 7 layer cake for desert....
Everything was exactly how we had always hoped Taiwanese food would taste ... except the steamed cake ... not so great, you can see the disappointment in JP's eyes.
