I have to say Ding Tai Fung's dumplings and other dishes are quite delicious. However I don't think it's worth the hype! The items are slightly overpriced. Service is quite good in this branch actually.
Unless I come with tourists I don't think I'd come back for lunch.
Shrimp noodles in broth - a healthy choice as it was really clear broth with plain noodles and steamed shrimps. But for $60 you ain't gonna get full.
Xiao Long Bao - quite well done nice thin skin with juicy meat inside. Usually when I eat xiao long bao I actually care more about the vinegar and ginger more than anything!
My friend ordered fried rice and it looked pretty decent and fragrant. But he needed a burger to tie him over afterwards
