If you have found yourself in Hong Kong, you probably already know that Hong Kong food is simply superb. The combination of traditional Chinese food with local influences has led to the development of excellent local cuisine.

And one of the staples of this cuisine are dumplings or Dim Sum. If you’re looking for the best dumplings in the city, and perhaps in the whole world, Din Tai Fung is the place to visit.

Best dumplings I have ever had

This restaurant chain has five busy branches in Hong Kong. All branches have an open kitchen where you can see the intense preparation process. The Dim Sam served in Din Tai Fung is simply excellent. There are vegetarian and vegan Dim Sum, chicken dishes, pork dishes, and lots of special starters. 

You must try the unique Sam Xiaolongbao dish, where each Dim Sum is filled whit yummy soup in addition to the filling.

The service at the restaurant is fast, patient, and excellent. All branches have the same dishes and the same service. Prices are reasonable relative to Hong Kong. During rush hours, the order is made before you’re even seated.

If you love dumplings and visit the city, this is a one-time experience that is simply not to be missed.
