Beverages: Coral Seaweed Barley Drink and Iced Sour Plum with Kumquat Juice (on the left side of the photo). Something I never knew is available on the menu! Both are a refreshing hit, but my favourite is the Coral Seaweed Barley Drink.

 Appetisers: Oriental Salad in Vinegar Dressing a mix of julienne seaweed, bean sprouts, chilli, beancurd strips and rice vermicelli, tossed in a light, tangy dressing.
I personally love vinegar so I can't really taste the vinegar dressing, hopping it was stronger in flavour.

  Appetisers: Red Dates with Glutinous Rice 红枣圆 - fragrant red dates that are generously filled with steamed glutinous rice fillings.
Not a fan of red dates and it's a little too sweet for my liking. However I'm amazed at the glutinous rice, it tasted like mochi.

 Appetisers: Sliced Duck in Crispy Spring Onion Pastry 葱香smoked duck and spring onions are wrapped in a crispy spring roll skin. 
One of my must order in Din Tai Fung! 

Truffle Xiao Long Bao 松露小笼包 - award-winning steamed dumplings loaded with the finest truffles.
 It seems too good to be true!

But it's true!! This is unlike other truffle Xiao Long Bao, it isn't as oily and is so aromatically.

Oriental Wontons with Black Vinegar & Chilli Oil 红油抄手 - flavourful mix of vinegar and chilli oil. 
You can finish it in just one bite! Yumms :)

Taiwan Shrimp and Pork Oriental Wantons with Spicy Sauce 川味抄手 (launching in March 2015) - the spicy is really tangy! You can go for the oriental ones for a safer option if you can't eat spicy.

 Pan-fried Shrimp and Pork Gyoza 虾仁煎饺 - New item on Din Tai Fung menu, currently only available in Din Tai Fung @ Paragon, Resorts World Sentosa, Marina Bay Sands.
The pan-fried base of the gyoza could be crustier though.

 Crispy Golden Prawn Pancake  酥脆腐皮虾饼 tender, juicy and deep fried to a golden perfection.
One strip of it is never enough, it's pretty addictive!

  Fried Rice with Shredded Pork and Eggs  - made with very simple ingredients, each plate is of a certain weight and minimal seasoning is used so that the natural fragrance of the eggs and spring onions shines through.
Can't go wrong with Din Tai Fung's fried rice, always so fragrant!

 Stir-fried Dou Miao with Shrimp 虾仁豆 - made with only premium young, tender shoots.
It is said that the Dou Miao is cut almost identical in length and quality before stirring in the wok with just a teaspoon of sunflower oil. Vivienne's favourite dish of the night!

Fragrant Peanut Dumplings - Rolled by hand, it contains an aromatic balance of sweet and savoury peanut fillings complimented with fresh coconut shavings finish.
I personally think it's too dry, partly because of the peanuts inside.

This is my first time trying, and I kind of expected the peanut to flow haa!

 Steamed Chinese Style Layer Cakes 层油these traditional layer cakes are smooth and slightly sticky surface glides on the tongue.
I can literally peel them into layers and eat it.

Peanut and Black Sesame Glutinous Rice Balls 双喜汤圆 - symbol of familial unity in Chinese culture.
To me, Tang Yuan can be eaten any time of the year :) This is currently an off-the-menu dish.

From now till End of February, exclusively complimentary for dine-in customers with a minimum spending of $90 at all outlets. *Citibank carholders with a minimum spending of $80*
It will be served in a bowl of six rice balls, three white rice balls (peanut fillings) and three pink rice balls (black sesame fillings).

Thank you Din Tai Fung Team for the awesome hospitality and goodies bag! My mum loved the Pineapple Tarts :)
