“Din Tai Fung” Restaurant in Shanghai – Dim Sum Galore!

Din Tai Fung Bamboo Basket

Admittedly, Din Tai Fun is a chain restaurant with branches all over Asia and even in Los Angeles and Seattle, and so in general it represents nothing that would put the epicure mind in a spontaneous state of excitement. But on the other hand it rather is an upscale kind of chain and the food just tastes so delicious that I have to post about our dinner there. Din Tai Fun is specialized in the preparation of Dim Sum, these steemed dumplings and buns that are part of Cantonese cuisine and that have this intrinsic yumminess which doesn’t need much description. So from here on we’ll nearly keep it to food-porn level. Oh, and thanks a lot, Laurence, for having taken us there (Not her first influence on this blog -she once took us to Lei Garden Restaurant in Singapore)!

Carrying Bamboo Baskets
Bamboo baskets are at the center of attention in Din Tai Fung.

Soy Sauce and vinegar
Soy Sauce and vinegar are essential condiments for dipping your Dim Sum….

fresh ginger
… but also fresh ginger is a  great addition.

Xiaolongbao
Pork-filled dumplings, also called Xiaolongbao.

Pork-filled dumplings
They are filled with hot broth. Ideally you poke the dumpling and suck in the juice while eating it.

shao-mai
Shrimp and pork shao-mai, another dumpling variation.

Mushroom Dumplings
I think these ones were filled with mushroom.

Spicy pork dumplings
Spicy pork dumplings, a favorite.

Beef Soup
Beef Soup.

dining room
The dining room: a little canteen-like and also noisy, but then again with a nice ,casual atmosphere. Probably not suitable for a romantic date with wedding-proposal though.
