提起鼎泰豐, 在台灣可是無人不知, 無人不曉的知名小籠包餐廳, 他們的小籠包之好吃到連外國人都曉得. 許多日本遊客到台灣來都指名要吃鼎泰豐.

記得前年回台灣時, 跑去鼎泰豐的忠孝東路分店, 從進去坐下, 點菜, 上菜, 吃飯到付錢出來, 我們只花了三十分鐘. 如此高效率系統化的管理制度, 令人讚嘆. 而且他們的小籠包, 真的是讓人讚不絕口, 好吃得很!

但是台灣可能有很多朋友不曉得, 鼎泰豐在美國也開了一家分店. 位於洛城附近的阿凱迪亞市(Arcadia). 剛開幕時, 天天高朋滿座, 用餐時間去吃飯, 都有可能要等上一兩個鍾頭. 即使現在開幕這麼多年了, 每回經過還是看到店門口大排長龍的模樣.

為了應付如此大量的客群, 近來, 鼎泰豐在本店的後排商場又另外開了一家分店. 共有兩層樓.  地方比起舊店面大了許多. 但是晚上和朋友來時, 還是等了大約二十幾分鐘左右才有位子坐.

新店面全面採用比較摩登新潮的家具及裝修, 和本店原有的中國風味裝潢相差許多.

我們在排隊時就已經知道要點什麼了, 鼎泰豐的選項不多, 好吃的就那幾道菜. 這是每回來必點的小籠包:

他們的小籠包特徵都是小小一顆, 皮做得很薄, 肉餡美味適中, 一咬下去, 裡面的湯汁會四處噴溢出來. 那種美味讓人感到意猶未盡.

蟹粉小籠包是另外一道必點的菜. 小籠包裡面含有好吃的蟹粉肉餡, 及熱燙燙的湯汁, 一口咬下去, 湯汁也會在嘴裡一湧而出, 美味無窮.

鮮蝦蒸餃, 裡面包滿一個個大顆的蝦仁及肉餡, 咬起來嘴巴裡卡滋卡滋響, 很過癮!

這是我第一次吃到糯肉燒賣. 從沒吃過包糯米的燒賣, 裡面除了糯米以外, 還有包豬肉. 老實說, 並沒有什麼味道. 吃起來普普通通而已.

我們另外也有點一道紅燒牛肉湯, 但是忘了照相. 牛肉湯比較辣. 朋友知道我不吃辣, 特地幫我點一盅雞湯, 但是這樣小小一盅雞湯就要$6.95. 比大碗的牛肉湯還貴. 湯頭是熬得不錯, 但是比起牛肉湯就遜色許多. 這道湯是今晚銷路最不好的一道菜.

除了蒸籠包子類的食物以外, 我們另外還點了上海炒年糕及炒菠菜來當配菜. 我本身覺得菠菜有點太油膩, 吃起來也澀澀的. 但是朋友都覺得菠菜還不錯吃. 炒年糕就很好吃. 年糕炒得QQ軟軟地, 配上菠菜和白菜, 味道還滿搭的. 我很少在吃炒年糕, 但是鼎泰豐的炒年糕就讓我會一直想乘來吃.

不管肚子吃得再撐, 來鼎泰豐一定不能錯過這道點心–豆沙小包. 我記得我頭一回吃到豆沙小包, 連連讚嘆了好久. 事實上, 豆沙包也不過就是豆沙包在麵皮裡, 為什麼會這麼好吃呢? 朋友們研究半天的結果, 最主要是鼎泰豐有名的薄皮, 配上香甜的豆沙泥, 吃起來就是那麼滑潤順口.

赤豆鬆糕, 這道點心也是我頭一回吃到. 白色的鬆糕裡面包著紅豆, 吃起來很像馬來糕, 鬆鬆軟軟的. 不會太甜膩.

鼎泰豐真的很好吃呀. 現在回頭看這些照片都還會流口水. 我記得他們不收預訂. 下次去要記得早點去排隊.

    sorry sorry…I must've remembered it wrong.

  2. This is a joke right? The chicken soup was the most ill-received
    dish of the night? And that it pales in comparison to the beef
    soup?
    WE DIDN'T WANT THE CHICKEN SOUP.
    Next time we'll make sure you're not there so we don't need to get
    the chicken soup and pay for something we didn't want to eat.

  3. hey amber…don't take jol's comment personally…i don't think
    that's what she meant…
    it just came out wrong…didn't see it till she post it….just an
    ill joke of hers..
    anywayz, the chicken soup I heard is supposed to be one of their
    well-known dishes, sorry you didn't enjoy it!
    Let us know next time if you don't want to order something =)

  5. everyone~
    sorry but I think this is just a miscommunication. I know everyone
    ordered the chicken soup for me and I appreciated it. And I did
    said the flavor was pretty good. But it just seems to me the beef
    noodle soup was much more popular that night. That's why I thought
    maybe their beef noodle soup is much better. That's all I'm
    saying. I wasn't trying to misconstrue everyone's good intention
    here. Sorry for this little misunderstanding~
