I went to din tai fung together with my wife in June for dinner during a weekday. It was a long wait for our tables but luckily since there are only two of us, we managed to get seated in a shorter time than expected. We both ordered la mians and a basket of the original xiao long bao to share. My la mian was the spicy la mian, can't really remember the name as it was two months ago, but it is the only chili based la mian in the menu. The la mian is really tasty with the chili oil when tossed. The chili is spicy and savoury and it whets my appetite for the xiao long bao.
I believe the xiao long bao needs no more introduction, it is afterall what they are famous at. The xiao long bao skin is very thin and the soup in the xiao long bao is really tasty and flavourful. The meat is also juicy and fresh. It is still one of my favourite places to have xiao long bao.
