Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐) [Taipei City, Taiwan]
Din Tai Fung (Taipei 101 Store)
B1, No. 45, Shifu Rd
What can I say but, wow. This restaurant on the bottom floor of Tapiei 101 is a great place to try. The steamed “Shao Long Bao” comes in many different flavors and fillings. We had the original meat, vegetables, crab and taro.
The beef noodle soup was a little spicy and was flavorful, as was the hot and sour soup. One of my favorite dishes was the spicy thin noodle, which had a spicy red sauce with some peanuts on top. After giving it a quick mix, the noodles had a great “burn” to it. Another good dish is the pot stickers, pan fried to a crispy bottom, while retaining most of the juices inside.
This place is definitely worth a try if you are ever in the Taipei area. They do have some chain stores around Taiwan, and even in the United States in Los Angeles and Seattle.
