Here are the three biggest Din Tai Fung fans, heading back to have brunch on Sunday morning before leaving Shanghai later on that day. Within a week, it was their fourth visit to the area, Xintiandi, and their third time to have meal at their much-liked restaurant.
Off to the same building again, South Block Plaza. It was barely 10AM, there were merely some people. It was just nice.
The picture below was from the first evening we went there, it was crowded then at the restaurant and we had to wait for a bit for our table. This time, we had reservation and it was way too early for the crowds.
We ordered some tofu dish that we never tried before. I can't remember what it was called. It was reasonably tasty.
We also had our usual favorite, one basket of 10 xiao long baos and a few other dishes too, including their noodles.
These nicely-arranged shredded ginger came with our xiao long bao. We did not eat or use them at all somehow.
These dumplings were from our first meal there. They taste like their xiao long bao, but they have shrimp on top. We all like their xiao long bao better.
I had a bowl of beef soup as I was not feeling that great, I thought soup would be good for me.
Long beans have become the kids' favorite and one of the must-have things when we go to this restaurant.
By the time we finished eating, there were a lot more people there. It's time to go back to the hotel, pack our bags and leave for airport. Til then, Din Tai Fung!
