Din Tai Fung (Junction 8)

Went down to Din Tai Fung on Sunday to celebrate my mum's birthday. She was pining for some xiaolongbaos.


Far Eastern style. Quite noisy. The place is crowded most of the time. At peak hours, you might even have a long queue.

FOOD: 6/10

Serves Pork.

The menu has a decent amount of items to choose from.

1. Steam Chicken Soup - $8.80: 2.5/5
While my mum enjoyed this soup, I don't quite like it. I found it abit too strong to taste and the chicken was abit tough.

2. Xiao Long Bao (6 Pcs) - $6.30: 4/5
The xiao long bao here is their main feature. Personally, I enjoyed the xiao long baos. The feeling of soup pouring out of this tiny pastry is an enjoyable experience. The soup was nice and I enjoy the texture of the xiao long bao's pastry, it was smooth yet it does not break easily.

3. Fried Rice with Eggs - $6.50: 2.5/5
The fried rice was rather fragrant but it was too oily.

4. Zha Jiang Mian - $7.00: 3/5
The Zha Jiang Mian was quite okay. The sauce is alright for me. However, I had much better Zha Jiang Mian at Mayim for $6.30.

2. Red Date and Longan Drink - $2.80: 3/5
The drink is quite refreshing, my mum enjoyed it.

SERVICE : 7/10
The service is quite okay, they were quick to clear the plates and top up the tea. Their mannerism is oaky too, friendly and approachable.

VALUE: 6/10
The food portion is just nice, but I find some of the items abit pricey.

OVERALL : 6.5/10
The xiao long bao is a must try. The soup and noodle ain't that good.
The place is suitable for :
- Dinner
- Lunch
- Large Gathering

Xin Li Felt So-so at the end of his meal
and would probably visit the place again.
