Daily: 11:00 - 22:00
This popular Taiwanese restaurant chain has brought its signature fare to Singapore and earned wide acclaim. Must-tries are the delicate steamed dumplings, braised beef noodles and traditional chicken soup. Although the restaurant gets busy, there's an efficient serving system that keeps diners moving through.
My family liked the meal at Din Tai Fung the last time I brought them here and asked me to bring them back again.
This time, we visited a different outlet for our lunch.
- Stewed Beancurd Cubes with Honey Sauce: $4.80. This was cubed beancurd, black fungus stewed and served with peanuts. The beancurd cubes were sweet and nice. Not bad.
- Steamed Pork Dumplings: $9.80. For 10 pieces. The skin is thin and it holds a nice gravy that gathered when the dumplings were steamed.
- Fried Rice with Pork Chop: $10.80. The rice is nicely fried with egg and cut spring onions. Topped with a golden piece of fried pork chop. Lovely and tasty.
- Dry Noodles Tossed in Special Sauce: $6.80. Hand-pulled noodles blanched and tossed with their blend of sesame and soy sauce. Simple and nice.
They were happy with the meal and we left happy.
Like always, DTF is packed during lunch time but the serving system is extremely efficient so the crowd gets moving and the turnover is fast. I am extremely satisfied with both the service and the food, namely the Fried Rice with Pork Chop that was superb! The Steamed Pork Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) on the other hand doesn't seem to be as plump as it used to be before, even though they were juicy and flavourful nonetheless. I am definitely returning for more as soon as possible.
