Din Tai Fung is a well-known restaurant franchise that’s found world-wide. It’s time for buurps to savor what they have in store!
And so we did, by taking a nice little corner. The place was comfortable. Service was really fast and efficient.
Let’s begin with a little foreword from Din Tai Fung regarding their signature Xiao Long Bao.
The art of making Xiao Long Bao is a delicate process. The flour wrap must be of a certain consistency – too thick and the dumpling is doughy, too thin and it will break easily. Even the soup within cannot be too abundant or too greasy; nor can the meat be overcooked. At Din Tai Fung, each piece of Xiao Long Bao is wrapped in fine – yet firm – translucent skin, and each dumpling has at least 18 exquisite folds. The meat within, steamed to perfection, is plump and juicy to the bite. Each Xiao Long Bao is made fresh when you order.
With that we start with the star of the restaurant – the Xiao Long Bao! (I shall refer to it as XLB from this point onward).
I must say that it’s impressive, the restaurant did uphold what they preached. The dough was made in such that it’s not tough to the bite yet sufficiently strong to hold the content, including the soup inside. The soup itself was tasty, more on the salty side but great nevertheless.
Ours was the crab meat and pork version that costs RM 14.60 for 6 pieces.
Along with the XLB, we ordered Shrimp and Pork Shao Mai.
It’s pretty similar to the XLB, with the shrimp on top. Good but I find it not as memorable as the XLB. 6 pieces for RM 15.30.
Mango Shrimp Roll (RM 8.30) was a pretty good side order, a think crust covering sweet tasting mashed mango. Do give it a try.
I also ordered the fried rice, shrimp and pork fried rice at RM 15.50 – as you can see, many of their dishes come with pork as pork adds aroma and taste. 🙂 The fried rice was very good, in fact it was my favorite dish for the session.
We also had Pork Bun for RM 6.80 each. Yes la yes la I know la, too many pork liao. We were hungry so order nice nice pork stuff. 😛 kekekek. It was nicely done, worth recommending.
And lastly for dessert, no more pork stuff. We had chilled mango pudding, which is also a good choice for dessert.
I guess all you saw today were SHRIMP, PORK and MANGO – nevertheless it was a good meal.
There are 4 outlets here in Malaysia, the one we visit was at Ground Floor of E-Curve. The location of the other outlets are found here.
