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.
