Din Tai Fung (DTF) is always on top of my “must-eat” list but why until recently, I’ve yet to patronise it? Long queue seems to be a certainty at DTF @ The Gardens even before the opening hours >.< That was the reason as I don’t like to queue!
That was until I got an invitation from Ken to try out DTF menu at newly refurbished outlet at The Gardens. I think God do hear me
DTF offer a delectable range of Shanghainese appetizers to tempt your taste bud & we choose a few of their signature.
House Special Appetizer -招牌小菜 (RM 3.80)
Consisted of julienned seaweed, spring onion, dried beancurd, chili & vermicelli.
Stewed Beancurd with Honey Sauce – 烤麸 (RM 7.00)
They might look like tofu puff but its a totally different texture when you bite into it. The texture is akin bread & made from imported gluten (面筋) from Shanghai~ soft & honey sauce is well absorbed.
Baby Xiao Long Bao – 小笼汤包 (RM 13.80 / 12pcs)
Miniature version of Xiao Long Bao, served with tasty superior chicken broth which has been simmered for minimum 6 hours & garnished with shredded fried egg. The folds of these cute tiny weeny Baby Xiao Long Bao are inverted.
PS: Only available @ DTF, Pavillion served only from 2pm to 6pm on weekdays and 11am-1pm on weekend.
Truffle Xiao Long Bao – 松露小笼包 (RM 12.00 / 2pcs)
Yes, you are not hallucinating, it’s truffle!! I can’t believe I can taste truffle in such an affordable price!!! The translucent skin encasing the warm savory broth moistening the patty of mind pork & luxury truffle within~ What are you waiting for? Come & have the most expensive fungus (black & white truffle) here at DTF without burning a hole in your pocket!
Shrimp & Pork Fried Rice – 虾仁肉丝蛋炒饭 (RM 15.00)
Seriously, this is the tastiest fried rice I ever had!!! Fluffy & flavorsome and didn’t oily at all!!! Not to mention the plump & juicy prawns , every mouthful is a treasure~
After this visit, I’m sure that I will come back for more no matter how long the queue
