Good Xiao Long Bao and More at Din Tai Fung!

We were looking for a place to dine and my friend  said she had a craving for Din Tai Fung Xiao Long Bao. I agreed with her suggestion and we headed to Paragon basement as it was the nearest outlet to us. 

Even though it was 12.15pm, the wait was about 20 minutes before we got our table. 

Here are the highlights of our meal:
- Xiao Long Bao: Served in a steaming basket in either an order of 6 pieces of 10 pieces. Pick a piece and dip into the dipping dish with ginger slices and vinegar. The skin is thin and gathered at the top. Bite the top off, to allow the steam within to escape before putting the rest of the dumpling in your mouth. The soup within is tasty and the dumpling is delicious.

- Double-Boiled Chicken Soup: Clear soup that's been doub;e-boiled with pieces of chicken, a sice of ginger and a slice of spring onion. The soup is delicious and a little oily. The chicken was tender and fell off the bone. I ate the chicken with the chilli dip.

- Sliced Duck in Crispy Green Onion Pastry: This was my first time eating this. It is a slice of smoked duck wrapped in a 'popiah skin' and deep fried. You can eat it on its own or dip it into the chilli or vinegar sauce. Crispy, tasty and delicious.

- Egg Fried Rice: The rice is nicely fried with the egg and spring onions. I like the bits of egg that's fried evenly with the rice. Must order!

My friend who has been to the outlet at Taipei commented that the Xiao Long Bao and Egg fried rice are similar to the one in Singapore. The greens in taipei is fresher, probably due to the proximity of the farm where the greens are produced to the restaurants.

Usher in the Year of the Ram with Din Tai Fung’s festive offerings and popular favorites! From now until 5th March, the prominent Taiwanese chain presents special creations to delight your palate. Lo Hei! The only legitimate time to play with your food! Celebrate abundance with DTF’s classic Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng, consisting of sweet Tian Jin roasted chestnuts, fresh slivers of jellyfish, twirls of crispy yam, fresh pomelo pulp and white radish. The dish is topped with Norwegian smoked salmon and drizzled with homemade plum sauce for a refreshing touch. Diners can also top up their Yu Sheng with Australian abalone ($13.80), Fried salmon skin ($4.80), Sliced smoked salmon ($9.80), Crispy yam strips ($3.80) and Pine nuts ($2.80).

The Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng comes in 2 sizes- standard ($32.80) for 3 to 4 pax and deluxe ($48.80) for 4 to 6 pax, and is available for both dine-in and takeaway. Citibank card holders can enjoy a 15% discount, excluding top-up ingredients. A perennially popular starter, the Oriental Salad in Vinegar Dressing ($4) did a good job of whetting our appetites. The addictive appetizer is a mix of julienne seaweed, bean sprouts, chilli, bean curd strips and rice vermicelli, tossed in an uplifting, tangy dressing.  Traditionalist will be fond of the clean-tasting Red Dates with Glutinous Rice ($4.80). Although I’m not a fan of red dates, I thoroughly enjoyed the texture of the sticky and chewy glutinous rice.

This is what I adore-fried food! Tender, savory meat folded in a crispy envelope, the Sliced Duck in Crispy Spring Onion Pastry ($7.30) is hard to resist!

DTF’s Steamed Truffle Xiao Long Bao ($4.50/pc, $22.50/5 pcs, $45/10pcs), is impossible not to love! Encase in each intricate 18-fold dumpling, are decadent truffles, pork and a slurp of umami broth.

Another rave-worthy item is the newly unveiled Pan-fried Shrimp and Pork Gyoza ($8)- tender, juicy meat encased in pastry which is crispy on one side and lusciously smooth on the other. These enticing gyozas are only available at Paragon, Resort World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands.

I’m sure most are no stranger to DTF’s signature Crispy Golden Prawn Pancake ($9.30). Fried to an attractive glistening gold, the succulent prawn pancake is a dish I never fail to order.

Stir-fried Dou Miao with Shrimps ($15) is a deceptively humble dish made with only premium young shoots. Each batch of vegetables is carefully selected to so that the shoots are similar in length and quality.

Chinese New Year Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng - $32.80 for Standard (serves 2 to 3) / $48.80 for Deluxe (serves 4 to 6). Available for dine-in or takeaway, from now till 5 March 2015. I love that the yu sheng is available for top-up ingredients such as Fried Salmon Skin, Crispy Yam Strips and other 3 more ingredients. In additional, Din Tai Fung uses their homemade sweet and tangy plum sauce, the overall taste is not as sweet as other yu sheng.

The next time you are there, try the Truffle Xiao Long Bao, unlike other truffle Xiao Long Bao, it isn't as oily and is so aromatically. I fell in love with the first bite!! Lastly, you can't go wrong with Din Tai Fung's fried rice, always so fragrant!
