Just as Singaporeans are very efficient, our number was called in less than 10 minutes. To save time, J has already submitted our order as he quickly ticked off a couple of must-orders from the list.
It's amazing how delicious they can make it to be with just the right amount of soup and still we noticed that the wrapper was strong enough that even if we held up our Xiao Long Pao for a considerable amount of time, it still doesn't break. Amazing! I'm glad J got two orders because one will definitely be not enough for us.
To complement our dimsum, we got the Porkchop Rice ($9). I love fried rice and this was definitely a great choice. One order is actually good for three provided you're ordering other dishes. I love how delicious the fried rice was and the porkchop was crunchy on the outside and tender in every bite.
It really takes a regular Din Tai Fung patron to perfectly estimate how much to order. For first timers, be sure to survey your neighboring tables to see the size of each serving so as not to over order. How I wish Din Tai Fung can finally make its way to Manila. Nonetheless I wouldn't mind flying off to Hong Kong or Singapore to taste their wonderful Xiao Long Paos again.
