Din Tai Fung in Rockwell: A Michelin-Awarded City of Xiao Long Bao
The Din Tai Fung restaurant in Hong Kong has proudly received a Michelin star for five consecutive years. This not only proves that their xiao long bao is world-class but also makes them an expert in the art of steamed soup-filled dumplings. Their opening in the country last 2015 was met with a grand welcome but now they are open to offering a whole lot more with the Din Tai Fun Xiao Long Bao Bar.
Known for the Xiao Long Bao, the Din Tai Fung (DTF) restaurant here in the Philippines allows customers to watch chefs doing the rolling, cutting, weighing, filling, wrapping and steaming of each dumpling. They then place these inside bamboo steamers and stack them on top of boiling water making their kitchens look like a city with towering skyscrapers of xiao long bao. Finally, they are now offering a culinary experience of the first Xiaolongbao Bar in the country.

Their new store offers exclusive dishes only available at Rockwell as well as the Xiaolongbao Bar offering dumplings filled with the likes of Chili Crab & Shrimp, Pork & Kimchi, and Uni & Pork.
