Ding Tai Fung Shanghai Dim Sum

If you are ever out in the Markham area check out Ding Tai Fung Shanghai Dim Sum. Very consistent, always flavorful, and never disappointing.

Last visit we had:

xiaolongbao (hands down the best in the city)
Asian chive dumplings
beef tendon, chili, garlic (served cold)
shanghai style noodles, spicy peanut soup

  1. Thanks for the post, that looks REALLY good. Might go next weekend.

    1. The soup dumplings did not disappoint, but all the non-soup dumplings tasted alike to me. Perhaps I should have eaten some of the non dim sum items as I saw many people doing, but I don't normally do that at regular (presumably HK-style) dim sum places.

      Nice atmosphere and good service, though, so it's worth a try.

      1. Important to note that this place has no relation to the Ding Tai Fung restaurants in Taiwan. The Taiwanese locations are superior. The Markham one is a good meal but not quite up to snuff especially the dumplings.

        1. This is my go-to dumpling spot in the GTA. It's my biggest regret for selling my car when I moved downtown but we get there almost everytime we have a rental! The best green onion pakcake I've ever had. The sticky rice dumplings are like the dumpling food equivilent of sex. :)

          1. They've been around for a long time, probably 10+ years. I remember when I first went with my mom they had just opened and they literally had to close early in the afternoon because they sold out of xiao long bao. We didn't mind waiting and spent 2+ hours there trying out the foods. Definitely did not disappoint. Dining room was packed for the dinner crowd so lucky we went early.
