We have been to several branches of Din Tai fung. We came here because one weekday we were both not working and decided to have a look at the Marina Financial Centre. Of course we found out that during lunch time every single restaurant was packed. Luckily we did not have to wait long for a table due to the fast turn over.
We had the usual stuff here. The classic Xiao Long Pow were pretty to look at and delicious to taste. The prawn dumplings were packed with succulent prawns that were so crunchy that we ordered another bowl with noodles. The noodle was suitably chewy and the soup base was clear and tasty. We also tried the vegetable pow and a vegetarian dumpling and both were as good as any of those we tasted at other branches. We ordered 2 sweet steamed cakes. One with red bean paste and the other was a steamed layered cake which was very plane. But at the end, we found that we enjoyed the plane steamed cake even more than the one with red bean paste. The layered cake was pretty and chewy and not too sweet. Deliciious!!
As I mentioned, the place was busy, vibrant and noisy. But the service was never compromised. The efficiency and courtesy were both in evidence. Additional orders were patiently taken and they even had initiative to hold the sweet items to be served later. Our tea cups were never empty. What a great dining experience.
