Dinner At Din Tai Fung Restaurant, Westfield, San Jose

THE WAITING GAME.... Dining out especially during Fridays and weekends is no joke.  Even after making reservations, we need to wait for two and a half hours to get a table.  We reached the Westfield mall around 4pm and the estimated time for our dinner is around 6pm... after walking two hours in the mall, finishing two cups of Cold Stone, we still have to wait for 10 more people in front of us. 

Oh, we did not have to queue up of course, they will send a text to my son's handphone.  After being said and done, how come I did not mention the name of the restaurant???  LOL... The long wait was from Din Tai Fung, a Taiwanese restaurant which has made its way to this part of the world as well.  I know there have branches in certain states in Malaysia but not Ipoh.... I have tried a few times but nothing like this long wait ever before.... 

Outside Din Tai Fung...
Going to our turn anytime soon....
Mostly Asians... many come to pick up as well....
And we joined in the crowd.... 
keeping certain distance away....
Famous for their Siew Loong Pau... 
Beef noodles was tasty too!
Fried rice with chicken chop....
And Spicy Wanton.... 
Nope, we did not manage to finish them all....
Doggie bag fried rice and two of these for the next day.... 
How much?
I think it came to around $60...
Don't convert and it is definitely cheaper!

  2. Oh? They have Din Tai Fung there too? Bet the prices would be similar to outlets in KL before conversion. RM60 is cheap! LOL!!!

    Wowwwww!!!! Standing in a long queue with a baby is no joke! I would have gone some place else. Your grandson must be a very good boy, did not make noise.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
