Originally opened eight years ago in Kaohsiung, the Hu Feng Shanghai Dumplings chain is well-known for its tangy-flavored dumplings and other tasty dishes. The chefs here travel to China on a regular basis in search of new recipe ideas and cooking techniques, so it's common to see the menu change every six months.
Some of the signature dishes here include the juicy Shanghai Dumplings (NT$180/for 10) and the Gourd Soup Dumplings (NT$200/for 8), made with gourd pieces, vegetables, scallops and pork. Their Shao Shin Drunken Chicken (紹興醉雞NT$260) is made with local birds that are soaked in Shao Shin liquor and Chinese medicinal ingredients. The juicy Hu feng Braised Pork (滬豐東坡肉NT$380), another popular dish, is not overly greasy. Vegetarian customers might like their Vegetarian Steamed Dumplings (花素蒸餃NT$180), made with Baby Bok Choy, mushrooms, bean vermicelli, bamboo shoots and bean curd.
If you like noodles, try the Noodles Soup with Salted Vegetables and Shredded Pork (雪菜肉絲湯麵NT$160), Stir-fried Rice Cakes with Salted Vegetables and Shredded Pork (雪菜肉絲炒年糕NT$180), Bean Vermicelli with Oily Tofu (油豆腐細粉NT$100) or Shanghai Vegetable Fried Rice (上海菜飯NT$220). One special dish, the Shanghai Pot-Au-Feu (砂鍋醃篤鮮, NT$360/small, NT$500/medium, NT$680/large) is made with tasty ingredients like ham, pork ribs, bamboo shoots and tofu, braised with a rich, flavorful broth and stewed for hours. Hangzhou-Style Old Duck Stew (NT$400/half, NT$780/whole) is another popular dish.
Ling-Po Eel Paste (寧式鱔糊NT$320), Fish Jaw with Brown Sauce (紅燒下巴NT$150), and Yellow Croaker with Brown or Sweet & Sour Sauce (紅燒/糖醋黃魚NT$550) are just a few of Hu Feng's well-liked seafood dishes. And, if you are a stinky tofu fan, don't miss their Steamed Stinky Tofu, Shanghai style. We can assure you that, once this dish is set on the table, the whole restaurant will know what you ordered.
From February 7 to 11, Hu Feng is offering catered Set Meals for Six (Set A, NT$3,200) and Set Meals for 10 (Set B, NT$5,200), which includes 10 dishes, such as cold platters, soup dumplings and braised pork.
The brightly-colored Hu Feng Braised Pork (NT$380) is made from pork bits braised with onions, rock candy sugar, soy sauce, and Shao Shin liquor.
