FEATURE: Din Tai Fung joins MOFA food tour

AFP , TAIPEI

For an acclaimed restaurant, Ding Tai Fung's menu is simple with steamed dumplings, sweet buns, chicken soup, chicken marinated in Chinese wine, fried rice and vegetables.

A standard portion of 10 steamed dumplings costs NT$180 (US$5.60).

"The taste is basically the same as the early days, only slightly lighter to meet customers' needs," said Yang Chi-hua.

He has introduced a computer to ensure the dumplings are steamed to perfection, and to minimize serving errors, he said.

But one thing remains unchanged -- Din Tai Fung never advertises.

"We have relied on word of mouth to bring in customers and we plan to stick to that," Yang said.
