Why Din Tai Fung Restaurant is special ?

Din Tai Fung specialises in the delicate dishes of Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces, has a bright and contemporary design, and subtle food combinations, skilfully prepared.


Xiaolong bao – juicy buns wrapped in a skin of light unleavened dough and cooked in a bamboo steamer – is the restaurant’s signature dish.


They are served with thin slivers of young, tender ginger in a light black vinegar. Xiaolong bao come with three choices of filling: ground pork, seafood, and crabmeat.


Cairou zhengjiao (steamed dumplings), another specialty, are packed with youcai, small green-leaf bok choy and a small amount of minced pork with some lard. These are our favourite of all the dumplings served here – and the lard is key to the flavour.


Leave some room for dousha bao, sweet red bean paste stuffed in almost transparent buns. These tiny desserts melt in your mouth.


Other must try dishes:


Steamed Specialty Pork Dumpling


Black Truffle and Pork Dumpling


Fried Green Peas with Shrimps


Fried Rice with Shrimps, Shredded Pork, and Egg


Steamed Specialty Seafood Dumpling

You'll really never had a Chinese dumpling, or Xiaolongbao, until you have tried the Din Tai Fung xiaolongbao. Every time I am in Beijing, this is a must destination for me. My favorite is their steamed pork - I can eat two baskets of this luscious, juicy, dumpling in one sitting. Originated in Taiwain, Din Tai Fung branches from New York to Hongkong always has the same consistent quality regardless of which branch. This is no hype, simple Xiaolongbao, dumplings, the way Chinese cuisine intended it to be. Its one of the best thing I had ever eaten.Tip: Don't pop the steaming bun directly into your mouth - it is very hot!!! Dip it in the sauce, take a small bite and suck the juice first, then when you emptied the savory juice, pop the whole bun in your mouth and savor the joy of perfect dumpling. :-)

Din Tai Fung delivers. Their hot, delicate, meaty dumplings arrive fast. We had shrimp/pork and mushroom, plus a side of cucumbers with chili, though the chili was sweeter than it was spicy. I also had their recommended double boiled chicken soup. The flavors are simple but the chicken falls off the bone - a great lunch accompaniment. The prices felt on the high side for the meal (about $40 USD for two orders of dumplings, cucumbers, soup, and two waters), but that's probably owing to its location inside a fancy shopping mall. I was hoping its location on the sixth floor meant a great view, but there were only windows in one corner. Nonetheless, this is a convenient, casual, and delicious dining experience. (The same mall also has a Starbucks on the first floor and a very good grocery store plus specialty food shops in the basement.)

We were in this restaurant based on recommendation from our guide book and tripadvisor and it was definitely worth it. Dumplings but also the wonton soups are amazing, service is good (was our first waitress speaking good English!) and the experience is rewarding. Try if you can!
