Din Tai Fung @ Wisma Atria, Singapore
Din Tai Fung was ranked as one of the world’s top 10 restaurants in 1993 by The New York Times. If a restaurant is rated so highly, I think I would pay to get the top 10 in the world. The Taiwanese restaurant is famous for its pork dumpling or Xiao Long Bau.
This was the first I patronized Din Tai Fung, in Wisma Atria, Orchard Road, Singapore. After peeking at their menus at the entrance, I find that the menu are reasonable priced (after conversion and so on) . Since a while I met Anne a friend in Singapore, so me, Rachel and Anne had a brunch in Din Tai Fung. We started with Braised Sichuan Sliced Beef (cold plate dish)[S$6]. The thinned sliced beef was a great starter! Then, we ordered a Steamed Yam Paste Bun [S$2.50]. The yam bun was ok, yam paste was okay.
We also ordered Noodle Soup With Shrimp Pork Wanton[S$8.80]. The noodle was good, soup was tasty, wanton was nice. We then ordered 6 lovely Shrimp and Pork Siew Mai [S$9.30] and their infamous Steam Pork Dumplings [S$6.50 for 6 dumplings]. Overall the food was good, but not the magically top 10 taste. Its still a good place to visit.
