Din Tai Fung is an award winning restaurant from Taiwan. There are branches all over the world. Din Tai Fung has been around since 1958 and then in the 1980s they began selling Xiao Long Bao, which made them very popular.
The location in Hong Kong is located in Tsim Tsa Tsui in Silvercord and has won a Michelin Star. Also, Open Rice has awarded them Best Restaurant Award of 2012.
It is popular amongst locals and tourists. I came here since I heard they had the best steamed pork buns. I actually came here about 4 times during my Summer vacation. I was crazy addicted to this place.
The interior is nice and has lots of seats. When we came around 11am, it was quite empty.
By 1:20pm, this place was PACKED. It’s best to come here around noon since there will be tables left.
Soy Sauce and Vinegar is at the table and you can use it to flavour your dishes.
I added the soy sauce and vinegar in my ginger for the Pork dumpling.
Juicy Pork Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) are so good! We had to order a few baskets to satisfy our cravings.
Vegetarian Dumpling was another one of my favorites. I know it doesn’t have meat, but it really enjoyed the minced vegetables inside.
Shrimp and Pork Sui Mai was OK. I really didn’t take a liking to it that much because of the overcooked shrimp.
Drunken Chicken was good. There was a good amount of meat between the skin and bone.
Shanghai Smoked Fish wasn’t our favorite item. It had bones inside.
Drunken Chicken Feet with marinated vegetables is not for everyone. It has a bit of alcoholic wine taste to it, but some people love it.
Shredded Vegetable and Tofu has a touch of sesame oil. I really like this dish since I have a bit of an addiction to sesame oil.
Hollow Spinach in Garlic
Marinated Jelly Fish
Shrimp Fried Rice is yummy too but it is a bit small, so you may need to order more. It was a little bit oily, but I really liked it since there is so much filling in it.
Braised tripe was good, but its not for everyone. Some people may get scared of the look.
Large Hot & Sour Soup was my favorite soup! Yum!
Pork Slices with garlic sauce
Noodle with Minced Pork Sauce
Braised Beef Noodle Soup
Fried Beancurd Puff with Vermicelli Soup
Overall, all the dishes were pretty good. One of my favorite restaurants when visiting Hong Kong. When you come here, you must have the Steamed Pork Buns! Its the one thing that everyone orders.
