Din Tai Fung at [email protected]

I've been invited for the soft launch of Din Tai Fung [email protected], they're having a trial run for their business to make sure their services efficiency and food quality reach their guest expectation. Din Tai Fung has been voted Top 10 Restaurants in the World by The New York Times and has garnered 1 Michelin Star. This Taiwanese restaurant serves on of the best Xiao Long Bao (steamed dumplings). Open kitchen concept is their trademark and also well-appointed decor, serving comfort food like pork chop fried rice and stir-fried vegetables. Or go for a heartier meal, the braised Beef La-mian, springy noodles wallowing in rich beefy soup. I would highly recommend this be a once a week family visit restaurant with dishes like steamed chicken soup, fried rice with pork chop that is incredibly tender, noodle soups and wantons (all hand-made) that will please anyone and any age group.

As you watch through the open kitchen at the regiments of cooks hand-making - kneading, rolling, stuffing and shaping them in the millions. The art of making Xiao Long Bao is a delicate process. The flour wrap must be of a certain consistency, too thick and the dumpling is doughy, too thin and it will break easily. Even the soup within cannot be too abundant or too greasy and the meat not to be overcooked. At Din Tai Fung, each piece of Xiao Long Bao is wrapped in fine, firm, translucent skin, and each dumpling has at least 18 exquisite folds. The meat within, steamed to perfection, is plump and juicy to the bite. Each Xiao Long Bao is made fresh when you order.

The original pork dumplings have a degree of richness, partly due to the fat content in both the soup and meat.
