Once described by world renowned chef Ken Hom as the “world's tastiest dumpling”, it may seem strange that there is such an art to eating something no bigger than the average mouthful.
Din Tai Fung has a signature point of difference - every pork dumpling pastry is delicately hand made to measure between precisely 4.8 and 5.2 grams at conception, before being filled to weigh between 20.8 and 21.2 grams. All this and the promise that the pork dumplings are made fresh in front of your eyes, steamed in exactly three minutes and on your table in seconds. Such scientific precision and quality control is what makes Din Tai Fung stand out from the rest.
The first Din Tai Fung that opened in 1972 was only a humble stall in Taipei. Din Tai Fung restaurants can now be found in Taiwan, Australia, Japan, USA, Singapore, China, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau and Thailand.
