Taiwan has lots of delicious food, and one of the most famous places to get delicious food on the island is Din Tai Fung. Known for their popular soup dumplings, Din Tai Fung has come to represent Taiwan’s food culture. This Michelin star rated restaurant now has locations all around the world. Here is just a sample of some of the best items on the menu!
1. Steamed pork dumplings
Din Tai Fung has delectable steamed pork dumplings, the best steamed dumplings I’ve ever had. They are also the most popular food at the restaurant. The dumplings are filled with juicy meat and soup, and the skin is required to have a minimum of 18 exquisite folds. If you haven’t been there, you gotta go try, it’s totally worth it.
2. Other Dishes
Another remarkable dish is the wontons with black vinegar and chili oil. This dish is a little spicy, but the wontons and the sauce are a perfect match, so it tastes truly delicious. I also really recommend their pork chop fried rice. The pork is thick, juicy, and aromatic. The fried rice is not too dry and too sticky, and is layered with chopped green onion so it smells heavenly. Din Tai Fung also serves hot and sour soup, which really lives up to its name. The amount of the vinegar they put in the soup is just right.
Din Tai Fung has a clean environment. The utensils, tables, and chairs are all extremely new and clean. The staff makes sure to keep the environment neat and tidy after they shut down the store. They organize a really convenient route for customers to follow. They will also arrange different kinds of seating for different types of people. For instance they will arrange booster seats for babies and provide sofas for the disabled or elderly.
Din Tai Fung also has outstanding service. The waiters will pour tea into your cup when it’s almost empty, and they will always take your plate away when you finish. They are truly attentive and professional. They also prepare convenient covers for your jacket if you choose to hang them on your chair – they’ll even give you bags to keep your personal belongings in.
I know it may sound bold, but Din Tai Fung is the best restaurant ever. You have to go try the food there as soon as you can. The delicious meals, great environment, and an awesome service is something no other restaurant can match. So go experience and explore the food culture in Taiwan, and make Din Tai Fung your very first stop.
