surprise dumplings

leave a comment »

Another weekend, another trip to Din Tai Fung. For you DTF lovers, I’m not doing this to irritate you. I didn’t even know I was eating there until I showed up to Tampines Mall.

Anyway, Tampines is up near the Northeast part of the island. I generally associate that area with Ikea but there’s also (as with most places in Singapore) a mall in the area. I met Thiena and her sister’s friend Evelyn there (who’s doing a stint in Ho Chi Minh City but is actually from Singapore) and they had done the work of ordering.

I’ll spare you from the usual grub (pork soup dumplings, shrimp dumplings, fried pork (yuuuum), noodles with cabbage and minced pork, and seaweed salad). The surprise of the meal were these suckers.

Steamy dumplings with the required 18 folds filled with…

Sweet taro paste. No frills. Sweet and smooth and a new favorite.
