When it comes to world-known Taiwanese cuisine, 𝗗𝗶𝗻 𝗧𝗮𝗶 𝗙𝘂𝗻𝗴 is often the first name that comes to mind. Founded in 1958 as a humble mom-ad-pop store, you can still visit the original location in Xinyi Road, located at the corner of Yongkang foodie's heaven. It goes without saying, sampling the national dish that made them famous is a must. 小籠包 (𝘹𝘪ǎ𝘰 𝘭ó𝘯𝘨 𝘣ā𝘰) are steamed 𝗱𝘂𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 stuffed with a meat and soup filling (that will burst to release scalding juices on the unwary taster). Din Tai Fung pride themselves in still making everything by hand, including the dough, and every dumpling will be sealed with exactly 18 folds. You can taste a variety of traditional Taiwanese dishes too, and new items are regularly added to the menu. To be honest, I wasn't impressed with their 𝘯𝘪ú𝘳ò𝘶 𝘮𝘪à𝘯, so I would recommend eating your full on dumplings. Their pickled entrees are all quite delicious. The 𝗴𝗼𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗹𝗮𝘃𝗮 𝗯𝘂𝗻𝘀 are a fantastic way to end the meal.
