din tai fung, singapore

with 3 comments

Woot. Din Tai Fung post #2.

We thought we were being really special by having lunch at DTF at Raffles City. We found out later in the day (after walking down Orchard Road) that there are about a dozen DTFs in Singapore. Okay not a dozen. Per the website there are 5 in Singapore. Compare this to the single DTF that serves all of North America. Singapore ain’t even that big! Why are there 4 on Orchard Road? Dang.

The one at Raffles City is the newest and the menu is shaped like a bamboo steamer. Cute!

We had 3 orders of dumplings- pork and shrimp (I think) and veggie dumplings (for our resident vegetarian).

They use cloth covers at the bottom of these which JenLui found particularly interesting. I thought these tasted better than DTF Field Trip #1.

Here are the veggie ones. Lots of spinach in these. No soup but very tasty.

Sweet red bean paste in a steamed bun (siopao bread style). Yum.

Now I just need to compare DTF#1 and #2 to the OG in Taiwan. How’s October sound?
