It will say Din Tai Fung when you order it.

Never fail on the plane.

The breakfast and noodle soup are excellent. Especially the beef noodle soup.

Nothing on the pre-order menu said DTF. Should I not pre-order in order to try DTF on the regular menu then? This is LAX-TPE-SIN RT.

My guess is that if it does not say, then it is not. In that case, I guess try the DTF in Glendale or Arcadia or Singapore

Here is my pre-order menu for 9/21 on EVA 28.

"Din Tai Fung Spicy Shrimp and Pork Wonton and House Steamed Beef Soup"

Like username said. If it does not say DTF. Then its not DTF.

DTF in US taste no where close to their Taiwan counterpart.

However, that being said. The best DTF is actually not in Taiwan anymore. The Shanghai one that is at 2nd floor of Park Hyatt Shanghai is the best i have eaten.

I am very disappointed to see the Din Tai Fung beef noodle soup is not available on my next flight..

It has been available on the same route for years and is the only meal that I know exactly what to expect and have always enjoyed.

The steak was not terrific. It was not very good at all. Quite a let down, actually.

But, a week later Eva totally redeemed herself. Upstairs in Super Business on a 747-400 Combi serving BR272 from Manila to Taipei, I was served a Salmon dish that was just phenomenal. It was unexpected and really very good.

Steak was really dry and not fattening at all. It was very skinny and dry overall.

The other dishes are pretty good

We are flying BR 31/255 from JFK/TPE/DPS and I tried to order meals, but I was unable to do so as the software would not allow me to do so. I wrote down which options my wife and I wanted for all 4 of our flights and called EVA in NYC. The agent was not able to order them as well, although he told me he was able to order only dinner on BR31. I hung up and the next day called the 800 # and the agent tried again but she could not order meals as well. She told me she could order 1 special meal for all flights, so I had her order seafood for us on all flights. It will be interesting to see what we get for breakfast on BR31 that is seafood.
I will try again when we check in at JFK on 10/4.

At check-in is too late to order meals. There is a T-24 limit on "Book the Cook".

Yes, I understand this needs to be done 24 hours ahead, but we still can do our second flight for TPE to DPS.

Updated recommendation?

These are our choices for our upcoming flight in November, from LAX to TPE. The options with a * are only available as pre-catered. I probably would have gone with the Wagyu Beeef Sirloin, but the consensus seems to think that's a bad choice. Any recommendations? Thanks.

- Duck Breast with Blueberry Sauce Served with Seasonal Vegetables and Mustard Mashed Potato
- Jidori Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Served with Seasonal Vegetables and Parmesan Bread Pudding
- Oriental Lobster in Ginger and Spring Onion Sauce Served with Seasonal Vegetables and Egg Fried Rice
- *Wagyu Beef Sirloin with Truffle Hollandaise Sauce, Seasonal Vegetables, Mashed Potato with Kale
- *Chilean Seabass with Crispy Bean Sauce, Seasonal Vegetables, Egg Fried Rice
- *Poached Cornish Hen, Seasonal Vegetables, Saffron Fingerling Potato
- *Rack of Lamb with Tapenade, Seasonal Vegetables, Mashed Parsnip
