The eatery had humble beginnings but has become an international phenomenon.
So we missed this when they launched last week - but think it's well worth bringing to your attention as a public service announcement. When we first visited Din Tai Fung, among the things we really wanted to try were the salted egg yolk custard lava buns - made with duck egg yolk. We'd heard talk of them, they sound amazing and they LOOK amazing. But were, alas, not available. Until now.
World-famous Taiwanese dumpling chain Din Tai Fung has announced that its first-ever London restaurant will open on the 5 December — on Henrietta Street in Covent Garden.
