    Taiwanese snack shop Gaochi has special sets with noodles but the real draw here are their extra-fluffy shengjian bao, cooked to order in individual pans.

    • Dining | Gemma | Weekdays
  • Din Tai Fung Lunch

    Din Tai Fung, the upmarket dumpling master, doesn't need any deals to draw the crowds. However, it's a great place to stop in for a steamer of soup dumplings (66mb for 10 pork dumplings) or simple but quality noodles (red-braised beef...
