For lovers of Xiaolongbao, (dumplings filled with meat and piping hot broth), Din Tai Fung are opening a rather large branch at the Eight Thonglor building (currently under partial renovations).

Din Tai Fung Coming To Eight Thonglor

Din Tai Fung have finally stepped out of the “Central Group” location comfort zone into an independent mall location (and let’s face it, as much as we’re attached to the original branch in Central World, it was getting a little crusty). But we do hear great reports about the more recent Central Embassy branch from the Bangkok Foodies members

Din Tai Fung, didn’t manage to get very far from Central Bangkok in this case, only a short BTS ride away but Upper Sukhumvit and especially Thonglor residents should be thoroughly pleased at this neighborhood addition. 

Their launch date states November on the ‘Locate Us’ website but the lady on the phone tells us December. I guess best to play it safe. 

Oh yeah, Paul is opening up in Eight Tonglor too, and El Gaucho and Calin Cafe are still hanging around, so nobody needs to have a meltdown over food choice.
