Ding Tai Fung – Truffle Xiao Long Bao

I love Ding Tai Fung.

DTF = Outstanding quality, reasonable prices and consistent standard. It is one of my favourite meal places.


Truffle Xiao Long Bao (with DTF’s signature 18 intricate folds) – This is sinfully good but after the second piece, the taste became overwhelming. I guess I prefer my truffles on fries. :P

The truffles were air flown from France and there was a generous piece in each XLB which explained the $4 a pop price tag. These XLBs were served only to foreign dignitaries and important guests back in Taiwan. This is now offered exclusively in a few of their Singapore branches (Including Katong I12).

I like these seasonal XLB offered by DTF. I tried the chili crab, chocolate, truffle and mini XLBs till date! I had to take leave to try the mini XLBs previously because DTF served them only in the Paragon branch on weekdays. See what I would do for XLBs! :)

Overall, truffle XLB is good but the humble pork XLB is better.
