Last Wednesday was such a treat. My buddy Jeff took a day off and we spend time together. It's been awhile since I last hang out with this dude. Finally the busy boy is free for some shopping and dinner~ It was a great day for both of us. He managed to get a perfect khakis pants from Levis and I bought a perfect beige heels that I always wanted from Aldo. We close the great evening hang out with a perfect dinner at Din Tai Fung, laugh, talk and we took some pretty pictures. Oh and guess what we're already planning on our next get together in Malacca =) I can't wait!
Well I think you guys are more interested about the restaurant...ok~OK~ Let's talk about food now!
Din Tai Fung is a Taiwanese based chain of restaurants which has now expanded internationally to many parts of the world including here in Malaysia in which it has 2 branches, in Pavilion and Gardens. It was ranked as one of the world’s top 10 restaurants in 1993 by The New York Times. Awesome huh!
You can actually view the Chefs at WORK!
I really love the interior!
Here comes the menu~
There's so much varieties to choose from...yums~
Jeff knows what's good here so I'll just hand the menu to him =)
and I'll camwhore haha~
Most of the food came out very quickly!
Din Tai Fung is best known for their Xiu Long Bao 小笼包 (Soup Dumplings). For those that don’t know what a Xiu Long Bao is, it’s a very interesting dumpling. It’s not just where you get meat inside the dumpling, it’s also filled with clear soup. It's DELICIOUS! In fact I find it so much better than the 'Xiao Long Pao' in Dragon-i (籠的傳人)!!!
Spicy Vegetable and Pork Wontons (紅油抄手) dipped in spicy sauce. They were delectable! The sauce had a spicy, peppery sweetness that went so well with the dumplings. There was a choice between pork or prawns.
braised beef noodle soup (紅燒牛肉麵); which is a very authentic Taiwanese food. The noodles were well soaked in this bowl of braised beef broth. The beef was excellent, very tender and flavorful.
Hungry boy =D
All in all, it was a pleasant experience, especially because we got there before the peak hour so we did not have to wait. I would definitely go back to this restaurant again, but maybe not too often or else I'll go broke!
Sorry for the photo overload, but I just couldn't help myself. It was such a perfect day and I snapped so many photos. I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
