The Moment Group has finally succeeded in bringing ‘The World’s Greatest Dumpling’ to Manila in the form of Din Tai Fung’s xiao long bao.

Din Tai Fung is not just a restaurant—it is a worldwide phenomenon, drawing long queues for years in every country it has set foot in. What is the secret of this Michelin-starred restaurant? Din Tai Fung upholds the quality of its brand in the strictest (almost obsessive) way possible, delivering consistent and unparalleled quality of food and service. Its world-renowned xiao long bao is meticulously crafted by hand, and comes in five different variants: pork, crab roe and pork, chicken, green squash and shrimp, and truffle.

Din Tai Fung is one of the most demanding franchises in the world and not one, not two, but a long list of Philippine-based companies have already tried to court this brand for years. It is only now, with The Moment Group, that Din Tai Fung has finally said ‘Yes!’

Held last December 8, the opening of Din Tai Fung at the SM Megamall Mega Fashion Hall was attended by SM’s Hans Sy, Din Tai Fung’s Warren Yang, The Moment Group’s Eliza Antonino, Abba Napa, and Jon Syjuco, guest of honor President Benigno Aquino III, the media, food enthusiasts, and other VIPs.
