Din Tai Fung

Din Tai Fung is a restaurant chain originating in Taiwan, which now has multiple branches across Asia and beyond (the fact it remains largely unknown in the West is a tragic shortcoming). They are famous for their steamed dumplings (xiao long bao), which are some of the world's best: each move of the dumpling chefs is executed with careful precision in the open kitchen. It was once named among the top ten restaurants in the world by The New York Times, and two branches in Hong Kong were distinguished by the Michelin Guide. The service is truly impeccable, and the price-quality ratio needs to be experienced to be believed. This particular outlet is well hidden in a shopping centre, but worth searching for. The friendly staff serves quality food in a vibrant atmosphere.


Hong Kong offers a staggering variety of cuisines from around the world: Thai, Indian, British, Italian and not least, Chinese, among many, many others. Prices also vary widely, depending on the dining experience you are looking for. Cheap, fast eats, and street food are a must for the traveller on the go, but take some time to indulge in some of the city's top-class dining, as well.
