Din Tai Fung Dumpling House

A global outlet of a fantastic restaurant chain located at XinTianDi, Shanghai. Famous with their double boil chicken soup and xiao lung bao~ (little basket buns, with minced pork fillings encased in a bread dough and steamed in a bamboo basket). You've got to call and make a booking because if you are not... expect to wait for at least an hour! Since it's a last minute decision, we got Leo (A Malaysian friend who used to live in UK) to call the manager of XinTianDi to make a reservation for us! (WOW~~) Guess what... we got a big table in a big room! But that's other people's table at 7pm, (we steal it) so we got just an hour to have our dinner there. Lively atmosphere, bright, clean and spacious.
