We had to go here after hearing so many good things about it and it was conveniently located at Taipei 101. We wanted to go either to this or the original branch. Din Tai Fung is known for its xialongbao or soup dumplings. We went on the MRT Red Line, Taipei 101 Station. You can’t miss it. At the exit, it would be the first thing you’ll see.
We were there at around 11ish and didn’t have any reservations. We just told the lady at the front and she asked how many were in our party. I think they have different waiting times for 2s, small group and large groups. She said our waiting time was 20 minutes which wasn’t too bad. In the mean time, she gave us an order sheet so we can order. I’ve already written down what I wanted so it was pretty easy. If not, there’s also this huge menu outside for your reference. :)
Saw this really cute Japanese guy – twice! Once at Din Tai Fung and the second was at Jiufen. I told my cousin if I see him the 3rd time it’s destiny. Haha. Unfortunately, I didn’t see him the third time. :P
And that was our glorious meal at Din Tai Fung. :)
