When it comes to steaming hot soup dumplings, Din Tai Fung is often top of the mind. The popular Taiwanese restaurant has made a name for its Xiao Long Bao, a painstakingly laborious dish that wraps a juicy meat filling in a silky smooth dough skin with a minimum of 18 exquisite folds. The accompanying golden ratio of soy sauce and vinegar served with ginger are must-haves, and the restaurant has also branched out its soup dumpling offerings to include premium ingredients like crab meat with pork. Other popular favourites here include the Oriental Salad in Special Vinegar Dressing, a small but mighty appetiser that often sells out by dinner, as well as their signature Fried Rice with Shrimps & Eggs. The latter is a fluffy dream of golden pearl rice grains, served with juicy shrimps. Consistency is key here—diners come back for their favourites and the comfort that they know exactly what to expect each time they return.
