    This is a large outlet like many of its other branches, but I hate the seatings at the open atrium, where shoppers at the above floor could watch you dine. However there are quite alot of seats inside the restaurant too. Unfortunately, there are also the perpetual stream of diners during peak hours, so you could be assigned a table in the open atrium.

    That day, besides having my favourite Xiaolongbao & fried rice, I decide to try its Deep-fried prawn dumpling at $6.50 for 6 pieces. It also have deep-fried wanton at $6, I think this is slightly cheaper than at Crystal? The deep-fried dumpling comes with sweet sauce, and is crispy, non-greasy and nice. In short, I won't mind trying it again.

    I also like the fact that the waiters are always walking around with the teapot to fill any empty glasses.

    When it comes to payment, they do not accept Nets.

      To be honest, I can't believe that I've never tried Din Tai Fung (鼎泰丰) even though its rather prolific and alot of people have actually tried it. I guess I've been put off by the ridiculously long queues at each of its outlets during meal times. So imagine my glee when I found the crowds wanting at one of its outlet one afternoon.

      The place is reminiscent of a typical Chinese restaurant except that this outlet had most of its seating in the open atrium of the shopping mall, which poses a genuine threat of uninvited aerial missiles from the shoppers above.

      Tofu - For $3.30, I honestly didn't expect much. But I certainly wasn't prepared for the onslaught of the minature tofu. I kid you not. The tofu looks small enough to be devoured in just 1 large mouth. Taste wise, it had a high egg content and tasted very normal.

      Xiao Long Bao - The dish that Din Tai Fung is known for, its Xiao Long Bao. I can't say that I didn't like it, but it wasn't that much of a mind blowing experience that I had anticipated. The rather dry skin enveloped a mouthful of light broth that flowed out with every nibble. Also, the XLBs didn't carry the strong pork taste which I personally disdain.

      Fried Rice with Prawns & Egg - The rice grains were plump and moist, which made for a nice texture. However it lacked the quintessential wok hei and portions were minute to say the least.

      I was stuffed at the end of my $26 lunch, but prices here aren't cheap and probably higher then your basic Crystal Jade outlets for the portion sizes. Food quality is decent and service is efficient but rather curt. So much for the legend. But I might just have another go at this place if the crowds are nonexistent.

      See all my pictures here.
