Famous Xiaolongbao in Hong Kong

6 Jan

The award-winning DinTaiFung restaurant originated in Taiwan, but they are now located around the globe. I visited the restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, which has been awarded a Michelin star. Steamed xiaolongbao (steamed dumplings with a partially raised flour wrapper) are made to order at the restaurant behind a glass pane:

The restaurant itself is bright, lively, and relatively spacious. Dumplings in bamboo baskets arrive quickly. The soupy pork dumplings have a delicate, thin wrapper. They are the best I’ve ever had!

Rice and pork dumplings consist of yummy sticky rice wrapped in the same, delicate wrapper:

Expect long lines for a table at this restaurant. We arrived around 8:30 PM on a Sunday night and waited about 40 minutes for a table for four.
