I was craving for some good xiao long bao, hence lunch last weekend was at Din Tai Fung in The Gardens Mall. We arrived at the restaurant just after they opened, and the restaurant was already half full. The business here is ALWAYS good.
These xiao long bao are my personal favorites - the skin is translucent and each dumpling is perfectly formed. Our kids love poking the dumplings, slurping the soup before attempting to put the whole dumpling in their mouth! ;P
Xiao long bao (RM12.30 for 8pcs)
Julienned ginger with vinegar and soy sauce for the xiao long bao
Kids got their cutlery set, and are ready to eat!
We tried two types of la mian (pulled noodles), the hot & sour soup la mian (RM13) and the pork chop la mian (RM15.50). I really enjoyed the hot & sour soup one, as it was very appetizing and had a nice kick to it. Our kids shared the other la mian, they liked the noodles and soup.
Nice, springy noodles
The spicy vegetable pork wantan (RM9) was very delicious too, with a generous amount of filling and smooth skin. The spicy sauce complements it well.
We also love the Golden Pumpkin with Salted Egg (RM11.80). I remember that they used to serve this in a smaller version last time. As much as I liked this, the portion was too big for 3 pax to share, esp with our other orders as this is quite a rich and filling dish.
For dessert, some mini yam paste buns (RM6.30) for our kiddies. Soft fluffy buns, with smooth filling which our kids love.
Nice outing ;)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
