Din Tai Fung
Where we've featured it
Din Tai Fung is a casual Taiwanese restaurant on Henrietta Street that specialises in dumplings. Yes, there are soup and rice dishes on the menu, but if you don’t get the chilli crab xiao long bao and pork wontons in black chilli then you’re doing it wrong. Despite being a pretty huge restaurant this place fills up quick, so get there early. Or bring some of your favourite people along so they can entertain you in the queue.
If Din Tai Fung had a catchphrase it would probably be ‘Dumplings, and World Domination’. Originally from Taipai, they already have over 150 restaurants around the world, and now Londoners can get their signature soup dumplings in Covent Garden.
