How incredibly practical! At the DIN TAI FUNG restaurant next to the Portman Ritz-Carlton hotel in Shanghai, China, they kindly pull a fitted cover over one’s jacket hanging over one’s chair, to prevent neighbours from sneaking inside pockets and unloading them of wallets, phones, cameras and other items aching to be nicked. It saves a lot of stress to know one’s belongings are safe, and leaves more time to enjoy the dinner. And dinner at the large and bustling DIN TAI FUNG is to be enjoyed. The dumplings are in fact amazing.
