Din Tai Fung: The Famous Xiao Long Bao

For this Food Adventure, we finally tried out the famous Xia Long Bao of Din Tai Fung. I can't believe we waited so long just to try it.

My brother and I went here on Payday weekend,a Saturday. The place was packed but we still got a table fairly quickly.

My brother's face while looking at the prices. hahaha

Excited to try the Xiao Long Bao!!

 May the light give us guidance in eating the Xiao Long Bao. hahaha jk

When you want to order something, you just need to indicate it on this checklist that the servers will give you. I encircled the Pork Xiao Long Bao and the Green Squash Xiao Long Bao, as well as a serving of Fried Rice.

Once the servers take your order, a print out will be added to the checklist with your total due. But it's not the final receipt yet. They'll just keep adding to this as long as you order additional items.

The first item that was served was the Green Squash XLB, you can sort of see the greenish filling through the wrapper. P150 for 5 Pieces

Then we got the Pork XLB. Looks pretty much the same with the Green Squash one. But tastes so much better. P150 for 5 pieces

This one is an additional order based on what we saw the table beside us get. haha 
It's a 5 piece platter of shrimp and pork wonton with house special spicy sauce. P175

Out of curiosity, I added the Green XLB in the Spicy Sauce and tried it out.

The Pork Xiao Long Bao was definitely the best seller here in Din Tai Fung. It was hot, the soup inside was delicious and the entire thing is just a delight to eat. Better to order the 10 piece platter so you can eat more. haha Aside from that, the Shrimp and Pork Wonton were also pretty good. Comes with legit shrimp inside! Not just a small iddy biddy piece of shrimp. The Spicy sauce wasn't that spicy either, but has a kick enough to make me reach for the nearest tissue. But you should be fine. It's just chilli oil after all.

The thing that I absolutely hated was the Green Squash XLB. It was not good at all. Stay the hell away from that thing. I realized that you really have to ask the servers about the items you order, otherwise they'll just let you order something that tastes disgusting. NEVER order the Green Squash XLB. You have been warned. That was a such waste of 150 pesos. *Sigh*

Pretty good Dumplings
Quick Service

You need to know what to order

Overall: Good. I'll have to come back and try the other items. ^_^
