Din Tai Fung was one of our best tasting meals in China, and possibly the most pricy. A meal for four people came up to around 600 RMB (~25 CAD, 24 USD). It was affordable after I did the mental currency conversion to Canadian dollars, but I doubt that it would be affordable for the locals. What does that price get us? A very clean restaurant & washroom, friendly staffs who spoke English, fast service, and a tasty meal. The soup dumplings are a must have, I liked the pork ones the best. The best dish of the evening for me was the coconut soup with tapioca pearls, served chilled. It was delicious and refreshing. I made sure to make a reservation and asked to be seated by the window for a view of the nighttime Shanghai skyline.
I would really appreciate it if you could please check out the travel page of my blog Simply Gluttonous, where you can find a full blog post on Din Tai Fung, as well as a list of other restaurants I visited during my Chinese trip. Thank you for your time!
