All the fun things I do outside of piano playing

Steamed Little Juicy Buns March 20, 2009

Filed under: food,Travelog — Jung @ 11:44 pm

According to the New York Times, one of the 10 restaurants in the world one must visit is this place in Taipei called Din Tai Fung 鼎泰豐.

Since a Japanese firm became its main investor quite some years ago, it now has 45 restaurants all over Asia and one in the US, with top notch quality control — even the number of creases on each bun is unified.

Ray took me to the very original one of course. From its humble beginning of a little first floor eatery to now an entire building of 5 floors with customers lining outside for blocks. We waited with patience even though there are lots of their chain restaurants in Taipei with no wait — the food experience was divine… Yes, I ate animals tonight, and I didn’t feel bad about it, but am not gonna become a carnivore because of this Wink

If you don’t get to come to Taipei, visit the one in California Smile
