Din Tai Fung

It's a chinese restaurant located inside the Gardens.
It's called "鼎泰丰".

Hmm, i always get confused and called it "泰丰鼎".
Okay, it makes evryone laugh
becoz it sounds lyk 我要去‘台风顶’吃。

This restaurant origins from Taiwan
& is an award-winning restaurant,
specializing in XiaoLongBao.

Today let's us start with a history class.
Becoz at 1st i m confused too.
Why is this Taiwan restaurant selling all China food??

Actually,
the founder Bingyi Yang
was born in China but moved to Taiwan
as a result of the Chinese civil war.
After working 10 years at a cooking oil retailer,
he found himself unemployed due the store's closing.
He founded Din Tai Fung (also a cooking oil retailer).
Around 1980,
tinned cooking oil became prevalent,
& business diminished drastically.

In order to survive,
Bingyi Yang began making & selling steamed buns (xiaolongbao) on the side.
The buns were so popular
that the store stopped selling oil
& became a full-fledged restaurant.
The original restaurant was located in Taipei.

I love this story bout Bingyi Yang
that shows us about the characteristic of our people,
“吃苦耐劳”&“生耕致富”.

LOL.

OKay, after this long & boring class,
let's start with our food!
Note: I went there for a high tea only.
So i cant bring u too much pict of tis restaurant.
Sry guys, but y not go there and try it urself?
