Our founder, Bing-Yi Yang and his wife opened a small shop dedicated to cooking oil and handmade Xiao Long Bao - steamed pork soup dumplings in Taiwan. The Xiao Long Bao or "little dumpling in a basket," are delicate broth-filled dumplings. We hand roll every Xiao Long Bao by order and steam to perfection in a bamboo basket.
When celebrating Lunar New Year, food is very important in the festivities. Various dishes provide luck for the coming year.
Tips in choosing a menu from Din Tai Fung this New Year:
Dumplings are a must for celebrations! According to Chinese legend, eating more dumplings during New Year celebrations will increase wealth for the coming year. Try our Snow Crab & Kurobuta Pork Xiao Long Bao or Jidori Chicken Dumplings!
Noodles symbolize a wish for longevity to those who enjoy them for their meals on this day. Uncut in preparation will symbolize the eater's long and happy life. Try our Noodles with Sesame Sauce or Shrimp Fried Noodles.
