A revisit to Din Tai Fung that I’ve been lusting for quite a while!
I’ve been looking forward to eating Din Tai Fung so much, to compensate the fact that 2/5 big meal cancelled due to my serious flu and and excuse to celebrate boyf’s B-DAY as well as V-DAY<3
I’ve never eaten DTF only with two people so the ordering might be a little trickier, but I decided to order like a king! ( does that even make sense?)
Watch out for the following FOOD PORN though!
Hot Oolong Tea that totally warmed our hearts and later served as a fresh sipping between the glorious dishes.
The most famous pork XiaLongBao, the yummiest creation of all, I was wowed by the lovely shape of it before every bite.
最負盛名的小籠包，超 級 好 吃 ！每夾起一顆去沾醬我就忍不住欣賞小籠包可愛的身形。
Next up Shredded Pork Fried Rice with Egg (white rice) I knew I woudn’t stop gulping these heavenly good smelling rice so I shared half the plate to my boyf first before there was nothing left……
We ordered a bowl of Sauced Noodles with Chinese Mustard Greens and Shredded Pork because I craved for these veggies but honestly it was too much to eat after a plate of rice. This dish was rather fresh and I felt so healthy eating these mustard greens.
These Shrimp and Pork Wontons with House Soy Sauce may not look so delicious from the crappy photo I took but they did taste nice, if it wasn’t for both of us still being sick we’d ordered the Special Spicy Sauce ver. which is even more delicious.
There came the Hot and Sour Soup (original), it was one of my fav kind of soup, it got many stuff inside as you can obviously tell from the photo and look/smell of it was just “stomach opening”, I was pretty full by the time soup came but I managed to finish this gourmet anyway.
Last but not least, House Steamed Chicken Soup. This was totally for bae’s, I thought he’d need some good nutritious chicken soup to restore his energy, after all I was the reason he got sick, probably. Although I couldn’t help but had a sip or two of this amazing energy soup.
Din Tai Fung they always have a working area that’s transparent for customers to check out, look at these guys, working very hard on all these XiaoLongBao we’re eating. I really appreciate their dedication to customer service and food quality, there’s absolutely no doubt why they’re Michelin-starred resto.
We spent NTD$1056 (service fee included) and were satisfied being too full, but seriously we might cut about $300 next time so we don’t stuff ourselves too hard. The only thing I wish differently was the dishes would be even nice came in more hot rather than warm, that’s just my personal preference.
P.S. I think this is my first time ever trying to write about food properly in English and whoa it’s pretty challenging, I mean writing it in Chinese is difficult enough for me let along…… I hope this post somehow makes you drool or at least hungry right now, that’d be wonderful:D
