Din Tai Fung @ e-Curve

My first Din Tai Fung experience was in Singapore. Fast forward, we have it in Malaysia since more than 2 years ago. Din Tai Fung is famous of their 18-fold Xiao Long Bao. Many have said that the original Din Tai Fung in Taiwan is much better than the one we have in KL, I might have the chance to try it soon Smile

We were there during their soft launch to try out their items and service even before it’s open to the public. Being in a big group of 10, we fired our orders away, thinking that we would be kept waiting for the long list of food. Surprisingly, our order came within 15 minutes, and they came as fast as we could eat, if not faster. Superb food and efficient service.Din Tai Fung

The other which worth mentioning was Spicy Pork Wanton, smothered in fiery hot chilli oil. The wanton skin was absolutely thin and smooth, while the fillings of pork and shrimp were succulent and generous.

For deep fried item lovers, a must try was Mango Shrimp Roll. This had a nice balance of flavour from the savoury shrimp and the sweet mango, coated with spring roll before being breaded and fried to crispy perfection. It is quite sizable too, definitely a dish meant for sharing.

The all timer favourite is still classic Xiao Long Bao – 18 fold super thin skin wrapping succulent and juicy meat in a dollop of delicious broth. Top that with shreds of ginger and vinegar, and you’ll find yourself slurping and munching away at the same time, marveling the delicate work of art that goes into the preparation of each dumpling.

For something different, we also tried Truffle Xiao Long Bao, the addition of truffle evident from the darker bits blended within the meat inside.

To fill your stomach, there a variety of la mian and fried rice - Fragrant Spring Onion La Mian that had a pleasant aroma from the spring onion oil. Give it a good mix with the superior soya sauce and what you get is a bowl of springy noodles that are QQ and savoury.
