It was time to feed Hello Kitty again, and when I asked her where she wanted to go, not surprisingly the response was Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐). I guess there's something to be said about going to the "original"... so we headed to the original shop and duly lined up with all the tourists. This being a weekday and all, and on account of us not gettin' there too late, we ended up lining outside for less than 15 minutes.
Chicken soup in a pot (元盅雞湯) - simple but good.
I still love coming to Din Tai Fung. The thin wrappers of the dumplings are still unbeatable, and I do like coming back to the original restaurant, so I don't mind fighting with the tourists once in a while. After all, I'm hanging with a tourist myself today...
