    The Place For La Mian & Xiao Long Bao

    There's always a long queue here but it moves relatively fast. 1) Steamed Pork Dumplings ($6.50 for 6 pieces). Juicy minced fresh pork (not frozen, I like!) is enveloped in a thin yet strong skin that didn't break when lifted off the bamboo steamers. Din Tai Fung proudly proclaims that every dumpling has 18 folds, which is quite a feat.

    2) Shrimp and Pork Wanton in Superior Chicken Broth ($6.80). I have to concur that the chicken broth is indeed superior. It was light yet full-bodied and had depth of character. Chicken bones were boiled for hours on end to extract all that chicken flavoured goodness, achieving that soul-warming quality. 3) Noodle with Minced Pork in Bean Sauce ($7), a dish, beautifully presented, of handmade noodles lightly blanched served with minced pork and petai beans slathered in a salty bean sauce. The noodles were made very well, as they retained their al dente quality.

      Was really wondering what is nice to eat in raffles city when my girlfriend told me that she is craving for xiao long bao. Frankly speaking, i did not recalled any shop selling xiao long bao in raffles city, but since she is craving for this, i decided to search for it.

      Was walking round and round raffles city before i found din tai fung tuck in a corner. It was really not situated anywhere prominent and one could easily missed it. We got a seat pretty quick and we started looking through the menu to see whats good to eat. Although most of the food served was pretty similarly to the other outlets, they have one 'small dish' section which i do not seem to have seen it elsewhere before.

      There are quite a few dishes in their 'small dish' section, we decided to try out their toufu. We also ordered some noodles and the crab meat xiao long bao. First served was the 'small dish' toufu, i pretty like the silky soft toufu texture. Paired with the salty soys sauce, it managed to give the plain toufu sufficient flavour. However, one thing i do not really like about this dish is that it is not hot at all. I suddenly realize that this dish could have cooked long time ago and thats probably why it was served so fast. Perhaps, i would think twice before i ordered any of their 'small dish' in future.

      Next up was the noodles, personnally find their noodles pretty decent. But, i was more interested in their crab meat xiao long bao. Thinking that the xiao long bao would arrive any time, so we ate our noodles very slowly. Then did we expect that after completeing our noodles, the xiao long bao is still not here yet. Having wait for a total of 30 minutues, the xiao long bao finally arrived. Its definitely a long wait.

      But i do think this wait is worth. Ok, initially i thought these xiao long bao would consist of entire crab meat in it. But i was wrong, they actually mixed it with some of their pork ingredient. But the taste was still as good. It is still as juicy with the juice hidden inside the xiao long bao and may dripped out anytime. :)

      Overall, i do think that their food is pretty decent and of course they managed to inject creative ideas in the ordinary food. Use the crab meat xiao long bao as an example, its definitely a good try. Service wise, i think they could really be better by informing them how long they will required to wait for their dish before hand. It definitely not very good for customer to finish the rest of their food and to realize that they will have to wait longer for one more dish to arrive.

        Doesn't exceed expectations

        Din Tai Fung is supposed to be best Beijing cuisine restaurant by reputation, but I beg to differ. I think Din Tai Fung is all hype. Sure the food is alright, but it is just that, alright.

        The menu isn't interesting at all. All they have are dumplings and noodles and a handful of other stuff that does not involve the dough from the dumplings and noodles. This is a poor representation of Beijing cuisine where there are also technically difficult dishes to make.

        The food here is also more expensive than the other restaurants hawking Beijing cuisine when you compare it dish by dish.

        If you are looking for Beijing cuisine, I wouldn't recommend Din Tai Fung. I would suggest you try Imperial Treasure La Mian Xiao Long Bao at Marina Square or Tian Jin Lou at Chinatown.
