It’s one my favorite restaurants while I was in Shanghai. The Xiaolongbao were to die for. Last September, I visited Sydney and checked out that Ding Tai Fung branch near China town. It was totally a rip-off, like a factory styled outlet with workers on masks. Very much unlike the Shanghai branches. Now, I haven’t been to Taiwan where this brand originated.
So, here’s a video of Abe Hiroshi with Aya Ueto talking about their experience in the Taiwan restaurant and hot spring. They are promoting the new movie 不思議な岬の物語.
How I wish I could do this job as a translator from Chinese-Japanese and vice versa. Unfortunately, I’m not a native speaker of either language.
