Taipei's best known restaurant, now with several branches in Beijing, specializes in xiaolong bao—steamed dumplings filled with piping hot, aromatic soup. Crafted to an exacting standard, there are several beautifully wrapped variations on the standard pork ones, such as crab, chicken, shrimp, or a luxurious pork and black truffle variety. The dandan noodles, vegetable dishes, fried rice, and sweet dessert dumplings are also excellent. Service is friendly and efficient, and the dining room strikes an easy balance between refined and casual.
