We got our table of 7 within 10 minutes. So the 10 minutes while waiting for the rest to arrive and some to the washroom, and many other things, my cousin and I ordered our food.
Oriental Salad in Special Vinegar Dressing. One of our favourite appetisers here. My cousin can eat a whole thing by herself, so it’s 2 portions of this.
The wife’s favourite Drunken Steamed Chicken.
Pickled Cucumber with Spicy Sauce. One of the wife and my favourites. Crunchy and savoury and addictive.
Another of our favourite appetizers, the rolled pork with cucumber in the centre with crushed garlic sauce. This goes with Mango Beer.
I got a voucher to try this and so the best time is to try it with many people with different dishes.
How clever of them to pair Taiwanese Beer with Taiwanese food!
To take it a step further, they even have a ‘paper wheel’ brochure that lists out the beer that goes well with their different dishes.
The men liked the Gold Medal Taiwan Beer, the ladies liked the Lychee Fruit Beer and White Grape Fruit Beer.
We like nibbling bits of everything, so we had the Mince Black Bean Meat Noodles and also the Spicy Sauce Noodles.
Din Tai Fung’s fried rice is one of the yummiest around. So proud of my cousin. She’s helping to order and she noticed that we have had prawns so we are not having the prawns fried rice. She also ordered very 2 different noodles above. More choices for us.
Another item that many people love at Din Tai Fung. The Deep-fried Marinated Pork Chop. We have eaten this same thing in different DTF and this one here is really nice. Some branches cook it a bit too dry, the ones here is juicy! Not sure if they send the best chefs here to open up or it’s permanent.
The ‘brochure’ says this goes with the Lychee Fruit Beer.
This is the Taiwan Shrimp and Pork Oriental Wantons with Spicy Sauce.
We did a mental calculation that we will exceed the $90 ($80 for Citi cards) so we will get this free.
Even if we did not, we will order it because the various dishes with spicy sauce here tastes good. We need to know the recipe!
This is the usual Oriental Wantons with Black Vinegar and Chilli Oil that we usually order. Still our favourite. Almost the same as the previous one but this has a sweet vinegar taste.
It’s good that we have a group of us, we can order more Xiao Long Bao varieties to try. The Steamed Angled Gourd and Shrimp Dumplings. A very acquired taste. Taste a bit too ‘green’.
We thought we shall indulge in some Crabs and Pork Dumplings. We are secretly glad it’s not the chilli crab dumpling they had previously. This is lighter and doesn’t have the chilli taste to mask it. It gives it a natural sweeter taste to the usual pork dumplings.
The Chicken Dumplings. The wife doesn’t like this at all. It’s all right, but not what we are usually used to. An alternative to those who don’t like pork.
They are having a special promo now as shown on the poster above.
We had quite an enjoyable lunch here. This branch is quite big and we like the spaciousness and higher ceiling. It is where the meeting rooms used to be that’s no longer there. The food items here were also nicely prepared compared to some branches that’s a bit ‘different’.
