What's Cooking?

looked great!


Oooooh -- the ORIGINAL Din Tai Fung -- fabulous! DTF/UTC is on our monthly rotation -- really love the food, and it's super easy to do plant-based options. They have definitely perfected the humble green bean! In other news, Bafang Dumpling starts its soft opening tomorrow in Mira Mesa -- think I'll check it out next week after they get a chance to season their cookware!


It was Kat!

This was a whole 'nother level Peter! I'm hoping Bafang opens at 10 so I can go early. I have a feeling the crowds will be nuts. Kinda regretting not going to the location in City of Industry when we were there recently.


We went to this Din Tai Fung and the one at Taipei 101 a few years ago. I think we stuck to the pork XLB, and enjoyed the veggie dishes (can't remember the specifics now). I'm looking forward to trying Bafang Dumpling, but I'll wait awhile for the crowds to thin out.

Looks awesome


Now I’m hungry 😋. Yum!

We’ve eaten at Bafang a few times in LA. Will be interested to hear your take but definitely don’t wait in long lines.


Did you detect any differences between the two locations Sandy?

It was ST!

I'm hoping to avoid the crowds RD!

The third floor photo brings back so many memories. We were seated there when we went in 2000 and 2004. The pork XLB in 2000 was my most unforgettable first bite ever. Envy!


Glad to have been able to "jog" some great memories Chris! Hope you have a wonderful New Year!


Oh nice you were able to visit the og location! I love the menu at dtf in Taipei. So many more vegetables and I like the green squash xlb.


Loved all the veggies in Taiwan Kirbie! And DTF was amazing.
