Din Tai Fung is one of the world's famous Chinese restaurant, specializing in Chinese dishes and of course xiao long bao! Din tai fung always has a long queue especially during dinner time where you may expect to wait up to 1 hour. It is common to see many people standing outside the restaurant with a paper and pencil, filling up their orders while waiting for their seats. Many hoping that the waitress will call out their numbers so that they can finally get to have a meal in the restaurant.
I ordered the fried rice with shrimp and eggs. This is an extremely popular dish, whereby it only consists of rice, shrimps, eggs, and spring onions. This fried rice is really delicious, tasty up till the very last grain. The rice is soft and moist, definitely not dry. The shrimps are very fresh and succulent, not those small shrimps you usually find in other fried rice dishes. The rice is fried with lots of eggs which make it extremely fragrant and all the ingredients complement well together. In addition, the dish is not very oily!
the steamed pork dumplings which contains minced pork wrapped in a delicate dough skin, which is then pleated, twisted at the top and steamed. The xiao long bao itself consists of a minimum of 18 exquisite folds which requires extremely great techniques and skills to master it well.
The xiao long bao skin is soft and delicate, the interior is filled with the broth which is flavourful but quite oily. The meat which makes up the filling is tender and delicious! The way to eat the xiao long bao is to dip it in soya sauce with vinegar and put the whole piece in your mouth, to savour the taste and enjoy every bite of it smile
This is indeed a delicacy and a must to order at din tai fung! One will never fails to notice this dish at every table.
