Happy Mother's Day!!!

First of all, Happy Mothers Day to all the mommies in the world! YAY! Don't forget to take this opportunity to squeeze out a few diamonds from your hubby!

My sis and I decided to celebrate Mother's day one day earlier to avoid the crowd on the actual day. We ate at Din Tai Fung, well known for its xiu long bao. The first time we ate at Din Tai Fung was at the Junction 8 branch, Singapore.

Appetizer. I think it's made out of tung fun, chilli, preserved vege, carrot and other unknowns (to me). Not bad.

We ordered Combo A which consisted of 6 normal pork meat xiu long bao + 6 crab meat and pork meat xiu long bao. The skin was just nice, didn't break when I picked it up. Juicy enough too. These are the small xiu long baos, the restaurant has bigger versions which are called Xiao Long Bao (er, isn't one in Cantonese and the other in Mandarin?)

Spicy Prawn La Mian. Ahaha, as usual, I tend to eat before I take the picture. What to do? My stomach thinks faster than my brain. Delicious. Quite spicy, but won't kill.

Braised Beef La Mian. This was the first dish I ate at Singapore's Din Tai Fung. Same chunky beef, quite chewy, a proof that no tenderizer was used.

Signature Tau Fu dish! I think the top part is seaweed, servedd with mushroom. Since there are four of us, we were given four pieces of taufu and four halves of mushroom. Ate it with rice, yum!

Shanghainese Smoked Fish. This is something different, quite interesting. They use dory fish to come up with this dish. It's like a fish version of Taiwan's beef jerky. Quite tasty and not too hard.

Another unique and excellent dish. Salted Egg Yolk Prawn. Prawn coated with salted egg yolk and then deep fried. Love this dish!

Had to take a walk after that...tummy was bursting!

Bridges here, bridges there, zig zagging, criss crossing...

In case you still don't know where Din Tai Fung is, it's at...

The Gardens Mall, Midvalley, Lot LG-207, Lower Ground Level. Tel: 03-2283 2292

We were given seats upon arrival because...

Guy Customer to girlfriend: Eh? Can book wan ah?
