Din Tai Fung House Special Appetizer (RM 8.60)
We started off with the Din Tai Fung House Special Appetiser which was simply appetising. We enjoyed this awesome dish where there were seaweed, dried beancurd, and glass noodles. Tossed in chilli oil. Perfect dish to start off where it was appetising with the sweet and sourish blend.
Shanghai Kao Fu (RM10.10)
One of the Signature and popular among the Shanghainese. The cold appetisers was simply good and I loved it when they came with the black fungus, mushrooms, and edamame.
Crispy Prawn Cake (RM 17.80)
We enjoyed this and it was just so good. The minced prawn and pork were perfectly wrapped in the beancurd roll and deep fried till perfection. The texture was crispy and addictively good.
Shaoshing Wine Marinated Chicken (RM19.90)
My favorite dish anytime. I am definite to order this whenever I am here. The cold chicken thigh was well marinated in Shaoshing wine. Meat was tender, and moist with the hint of the Chinese Wine.
Being in Din Tai Fung, this is definitely a MUST to order. They have the delicious Xiao Long Bao (steamed Shanghainese dumplings) and they have 5 types of them. They were the original pork (RM14.20 for 6), crab roe and pork (RM20.80 for 6), chicken (RM14.20 for 6), truffle and pork (RM56 for 6), and crab roe and chicken (RM21.30 for 6).
Each of them are carefully made where the xiao long bao is hand pleated with 18 folds. The taste was simply a perfect indulgence and have them when it is hot. And for their 10 year anniversary, a Din Tai Fung environmental bag will be given out for purchase of xiao long bao (6 pcs)
Fragrant Spring Onion & Shredded Pork Dry Noodle (RM20.70)
Another MUST have here is of course their noodles The la mian here is well tossed and served with the simple ingredients which is the fragrant spring onions and dry shredded pork. The noodles texture is smooth and it is simply slurpi-licious.
Pork Chop & Shrimp Fried Rice (RM37.50)
We love the pork chop and shrimp rice here as they comes with the generous portion of rice and the ingredients are simply generous. The rice is well fried with the fragrant eggy taste in it. The pork meat is simply tender and moist while the prawns remains plumpy and bouncy too.
Prawn with Salted Egg (RM27.10 (S), RM44.40 (L))
This will definitely goes well with rice. The fresh juicy prawns are well coated with the salted egg and deep fried till golden brown. This is simply addictive and delicious especially the creamy and fragrant salted egg sauce.

For those who love to have some vegetables, here you go with their Stir Fried Amaranth and we have them with the shimeji mushroom. Simply delicious !
Mini Golden Custard Egg Bun (RM9.30 for 3)
This is perfect and now I know where I should get my custard bun from. The golden custard bun is perfectly done and the custard egg lave is rich. Sinfully addictive.
