This popular Taiwanese restaurant chain has brought its signature fare to Singapore and earned wide acclaim. Must-trys 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.

Meat Dumpling at Din Tai Fung

It’s the time of the year for people to commemorate the dumpling festival.   Din Tai Fung has on offer 2 dumplings for the occasion. One is savoury and the other sweet. I had tried the sweet dumpling which is the red bean dumpling when I dined in the restaurant recently.   I had the savoury dumpling: Pearl Rice Dumpling with Pork & Yam in Lotus Leaves Wrap. It costs $12.80. The steaming of the dumpling took 45 minutes.   This was made with soft and chewy Taiwanese glutinous rice, tender pork belly that’s been braised for 4 hours and specially marinated pork chop, sh!take mushrooms, chestnuts, yam strips and green beans.   The flavour was nice and I liked the texture of the various ingredients in the dumpling, especially the mushrooms, which were chunky and had a good bite.   The portion is good for at least 2 people to share, else you will be ‘Jer Lak’, which is tired of eating too much of the same thing.   Try it!

For the full review with pictures, click here.    The pickled vegetable starter [$3.50] is practically mandatory, when it’s in stock. I find that when I go during off peak, no queue hours, they are typically out of pickled vegetables, so I’ve learnt to embrace the DTF queue   Of course we ordered the xlbs [$6.80]. I suppose there’s no need to talk about quality here since DTF is consistent in its preparation. I love the xlbs here. They’re not spectacular, but they are good and are filled with a very flavourful broth.   We also had their deep fried prawn and pork dumplings [$7.30] for the first time. They serve it with a sweet sauce that is somewhat like Hoisin, but much less sticky. A bit similar to the sweet sauce served with yong tau foo or chee cheong fun sometimes. They were delicious!   Our typical carbs here are the egg fried rice [$6.80] and the gan ban mian [$6.00]. Both the fried rice and the noodles are masterfully executed and so affordable!

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
