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.
If u like xiao long bao, then Nanxiang is definitely better. Here i recommend a good deal site www.coupark.com
a lot of cheap and fancy deals there. many good restaurants can be found offering great discounts!
we stubbled across this place at bishan junction 8 but it is the crowd that is so scary. as we went to the place at around dinner time, oh my gosh the queue was super bad and even though we were only 2 people we had to wait for about 1 hour or more. we were so hungry at that time that we had to just hope and pray that the queue would move faster. at last it was close to 830 when we go into the restaurant and we just gobbled our food, what ever that was served to us was gone in a few seconds.
however i still like the standard of the one in taiwan, but cannot compare since we are in singapore
The famous brand from Taiwan and a brand under the local company BreadTalk Group, this place is famous for its xiao long bao and noodles and fried rice. One thing to note and I dare say it does not only apply to this outlet is to avoid peak hours at all costs. Once lunch or dinnertime approaches, it can be a good 30mins to 1 hour or more wait just to get a table, depending on the number of pax you have with you.
Do try their xiao long baos and I would recommend their pork cutlet fried rice or seafood fried rice as well. For appetizers they have a type of vegetable dish called xiao cai which seems fairly simple but has a really wonderful taste so do try it. And to top it up, Din Tai Fung practises an open kitchen concept so you can view the chefs at work making their xiao long baos and dumplings while enjoying your meal.
As mentioned, take note of the timings; if possible, go before the peak periods.
