Ding Tai Fung | Pavillion

Din Tai Fung- a world famous restaurant over 10 countries. Everyone should know by now that Din Tai Fung is famous for its Xiao Long Bao which is a soup-filled dumpling with at least 18 delicate folds. So far, I have not try it out yet as it is always packed during weekend. After seeing interview about Din Tai Fung by Xiao Yan Jie, I can not stop myself to have it a try. It is really that good?

I went on Friday after work at Pavillion's outlet. The place wast packed, but we are lucky to get a place when we reach.

Lo Hon Kor 罗汉果-RM3.80
Herbal tea after a hot day, not very sweet, just nice for me.

Xiao Long Bao 小笼包(6 pcs)-RM9.80
A must try dish when you visit this place. Xiao Long Bao was served in hot. The skin was thin, just nice to chew. Put the whole xiao long bao into the mouth, one bite, the soup will flash out into our mouth. Second bite, you can taste the tender meat which taste really nice. Delicious! I like the thin, translucent skin that wont break off when you use the chopstick to pick it up. It will stick onto the chopstick nicely.

Pork Chop Fried Rice-RM15.50
The pork chop is marinated with the Chinese 5 spice powder which is quite strong. I do not like the taste as it  smell kinda strong. The fried rice taste very normal, not quite up to my standard of a normal fried rice. It use egg, garlic and rice only. It do not have the fragrant of fried rice.

Shrimp Pork Fried Rice-RM15.00
The fried rice taste as the pork chop fried rice with added pork strips and shrimp. Although, my friend recommend that fried rice was good in the Taiwan's outlet, but Malaysia's outlet doesn't seem to get it right I think.

Golden Pumpkin with Salted Egg-RM10.80
It is deep fried slice pumpkin with salted egg. It is a bit salty but overall taste quite nice and unique.

Shrimp and Pork Shao Mai (6 pcs)-RM13.80
The skin was a bit thick compare to Xiao Long Bao. The technic use to make Xiao Long Bao is the same as this except they make the shape a bit different which can add a shrimp on top of it. When you eat, there is also soup inside the filling but the taste of the filling a bit different from Xiao Long Bao.  

So far, only the Xiao Long Bao that impressed me. For other signature dishes, I can find much more better than those. I do not think there is anything good to shout about. I guess Malaysia have too many type of cuisine and good food we can find.
