Din Tai Fung

After several attempts at trying to dine in Din Tai Fung, we finally pushed through with lunch one Sunday last month.

It was PiggingOutOnSundays as usual and our family of 7 including the 82 year old pa-in-law was on the prowl anew for a different place to dine in  while in Rockwell.

The piggery fortunately were in the mood to eat Chinese food  and the hubby and I were not outvoted this time. Yes majority wins in our family .

It was still early so there was no queue. We easily got a table  and started ordering the following :

Mushroom Wontons with House Special Spicy Sauce 
P195  6 pieces
This was easily a favorite. I loved how  silky the skin of the wontons were . The mouth feel was sensational. The sauce had just the right kick but not too overpowering. I shall order this again

Pork Xiao Long Bao 5 pcs P160

No surprises here. Its the classic xiao long bao. I waited a  bit before biting into one so as not to scald my tongue

Pork Chop Fried Rice P295
This was the 82 year old Pa-in-law's order.  Normally when he does not want what he ordered, he 'shares" his plate. This time though he was really quiet and finished his plate all by himself. So I guess the pork chop fried rice was a good call

Steamed Shrimp and Pork Shao Mai
10 pcs P395   5 pcs P200

They looked so pretty sitting there like 10 flowers staring up at you. But I didnt like it that much.Skin was too thick for me.

Crispy Shrimp and Pork Wontons P180 6 pcs
This was another favorite and a perfect starter. Quite addicting

Stir fried Organic Spinach with Garlic P230
I loved how green the spinach were and the umami flavor was there.

Black Lava Buchi  P75 3 pcs
I really love buchi. The black color of the filling though almost turned me off.

Golden Lava Salted Egg Yolk P90 2 pcs
I would have really preferred a thicker bun. This one  was simply overpowered by the liquid salted egg yolk filling. So not a fan.


Overall although their food was generally good, the portions vis a vis their price was not value for money for this mom of 4 though. The piggery were not satisfied . We ended up ordering a few more dishes , therefore increasing the average cost per person.
