Din Tai Fung, Singapore: 6 reviews and 10 photos

Ding Tai Fung is ranked as one of the world?s Top Ten Best Restaurants by The New York Times.

There is a long queue and you will have to take your no queue. While waiting for your table, you can start going thru the small menu list and place your order.

The signature dish is the xiao long bao where you can see the chefs making them on the spot. We ordered the original and prawn xiao long bao. The original ones tasted better. The seafood fried rice or the pork chop fried rice are also very tasty. The stir fry dou miao fried with garlic are quite nice.

The chopstick holder has steps on how to eat the xiao long bao:

1. Pour vinegar into the small saucer with the ginger strips.
2. Using chopsticks, lift one dumpling and dip it into the ginger vinegar.
3. Place the dumpling on your spoon.
4. Nibble the dumpling wrapping and sip the juice.
5. Drizzle some vinegar and ginger strips on the dumpling.
6. Enjoy the pipping hot xiao long bao!

I still prefer the xiao long bao over at Crystal Jade's La Mian Xiao Long Bao.
