Green Onion Pancake

Something I often order at Shanghai dim sum restaurants is the Green Onion Pancake ($3.49). As someone in our group noted, if you prefer your green onion pancake very crispy, Ding Tai Fung’s version might not be your favourite. However, I actually enjoyed this quite a bit. It wasn’t too oily, had a slightly crisp exterior and contained a chewy centre. Delish!

Similar to the green onion pancake, we ordered the Stewed Beef Pancake Wrap ($5.99), which was basically the green onion pancake rolled up with some stewed beef. I thought the beef was okay – not great, so I preferred the plain green onion pancake over this.

Braised Beef Noodles in Soup

We had to order some noodles, so we went with the Braised Beef Noodles in Soup ($7.49). The bowl of noodles came with a generous portion of tender beef and the noodles were delicious!  They were a little on the thicker side, which I prefer, and had a nice bite to them. A really great dish!

To balance out our meal, we ordered some Stir-fried Green Beans – with minced pork ($9.50). Gotta get some green in the meal! They were nicely cooked – still a bit crunchy. Sure, they aren’t cooked in the healthiest way, but at least we got a little bit of veg in the meal.

All our food came pretty quickly after ordering and after spending $100 between the eight of us, we were all stuffed. Delicious food and really great value! If you’re looking for a place with great Shanghai dim sum, you really have to give Ding Tai Fung a try!

      I can see why. I don’t order them often because I often find myself disappointed but these were amazing!

    I haven’t been there in so long that your post is really making me crave it now. It’s good to see that they are able to maintain their quality over the years. Those pan fried pork buns have soup in them too? Gotta try them next time then!

    Really miss going all the places at First Markham like Firefly, Congee Wong, Ding Tai Fung, A Place for Us, Tracy’s Desserts and even the food court inside! Can you tell that my friends and I use to hang out a lot there? lol

    Spatulageek – You should really go back. I really enjoyed it! The pan fried pork buns have a little bit of soup in them. I didn’t know and burnt my tongue because I ate them too quickly lol

    Sammy – The xiao long bao’s were really good. But so were the other pork dumplings!
