The youthful owner of this establishment, Mr. Cheng, has worked in several "tang bao" (steamed dumpling) restaurants in southern and northern Taiwan and has now brought his skills to the central part of the island. His rich experience can be seen in the beautiful, exquisite folds on the dumplings he makes. --By Niang Chen, translated by Angel Pu
A. Pictured here are the Cured Meat Fried Rice (NT$100), the popular House Noodles (NT$40), Stewed Tofu (NT$160), and smooth Sweet Porridge, a good after-meal dessert.
B. Basic ingredients for the juicy, steamy and hot Xiaolongbao (NT$130), Scallop Xiaolongbao (NT$230) and Steamed Dumplings (NT$150) include lean pork, frozen pork skins and lard. Scallop Xiaolongbao--a seafood version of the standard steamed buns--is also delicious.
C. Din Shun Feng not only offers "tang bao" steamed dumplings, but also has a variety of reasonably-priced dining fare. Its long business hours are also a plus for late-night diners. Delivery service is available for orders over NT$200 (within 15-minute distance).
