There’s actually a funny story behind this blog post. I was walking at Central Park with a friend, deciding what we should have for lunch, a lady passes by and hands us the last flyer for something. “It says Free Dumplings” “DIN TAI FUNG? WE HAVE TO GO, THIS IS BASICALLY FATE.”
“Um oka-” my friend tries to say before I practically dragged her up and away to Din Tai Fung. If it wasn’t obvious enough, I’m pretty much Din Tai Fung’s biggest fan, a self-claimed Din Tai Fung Queen to be precise..
Xiao Long Bao – Pork Dumpling
As soon as you bit into the skin of the dumpling, the soup would oooze out onto your spoon. I really wish I was eating this right now, not writing about it.
Prawn Fried Rice ($14.80)
A simple but well executed dish. Prawns were firm and tasty with generous chunks of egg scattered throughout.
Golden Taro Bread ($6.80)
A crunchy exterior encasing a smooth taro paste was some good stuff! A lovely ending to a good quick meal.
I will be back to sample the rest of the dumplings with a larger group of people!
