Arti namanya adalah : 鼎 tungku -  泰, kedamaian - 豐kelimpahan

Pendirinya adalah Yang Biangyi yang lahir di Shanxi, RRC tapi pindah ke Taiwan pada 1948 karena perang di RRC. Setelah 10 tahun bekerja di toko penjual minyak, dia membuka toko sendiri setelah toko tempat dia bekerja tutup, dan dinamainya tempat tersebut Din Tai Fung, pada 1958
Pada 1980, minyak goreng dalam kaleng menjadi populer dan bisnis penjualan minyak goreng curah menurun jauh. Untuk menyambung hidup dia menjual Xiaolongbao. Akhirnya penjualan minyaknya ditutup dan malah menjadi restoran hingga menjadi franchise seperti sekarang.

Din Tai Fung is an award-winning restaurant originating in Taiwan, specialising in xiaolongbao (small steamed buns).[1] Outside its native Taiwan, Din Tai Fung also has branches in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, the United States and Thailand.
The characters in the name mean: 鼎, a type of furnace; 泰, peaceful; and 豐, abundant.

History

Founder Yang Bingyi was born in Shanxi, China, but moved to Taiwan in 1948 as a result of the Chinese Civil War. After working 10 years at Heng Tai Fung (恆泰豐), a cooking oil retailer, he found himself unemployed due the store's closing. Thus, he and his wife, Lai Penmei, founded Din Tai Fung (also a cooking oil retailer) in 1958. Around 1980, tinned cooking oil became prevalent, and business diminished drastically. In order to survive, Yang and his wife began making and selling steamed buns (xiaolongbao) on the side. The buns were so popular that the store stopped selling oil altogether and became a full-fledged restaurant in the 1980s. The original restaurant is located on Xinyi Road in Taipei.

Reputation

Din Tai Fung is known internationally for its xiaolongbao (小籠包). However, it is also known for its chicken soup, seaweed, bean sprouts, and mung bean noodle xiaochi.

In December 2010, the restaurant's second branch in Hong Kong at Causeway Bay, Yee Wo Branch (怡和店), was also awarded one Michelin star.



Friends @ Din Tai Fung

Din Tai Fung - Dining Area

Desain tempatnya bersih, minimalis dan modern, sedikit terbuka dan mungkin lebih nyaman untuk anak muda.
Rasa makanannya sangat mirip dengan Paradise Dynasty yang dibuka di Lenmarc. Untuk selera saya, keduanya imbang, dengan masing-masing memiliki keunggulan cita rasa sendiri. Di PD lebih mellow / lembut, sedangkan DTF lebih spicy, banyak rasa yang tajam. Xiao Long Bao dan beberapa menu la mien menjadi andalan keduanya.
