Din Tai Fung In The Gardens/Mid Valley

WE reached Mid Valley around noon and we were feeling quite hungry by then. Walking to take public transport, going up and down the stairs can cause us to lose calories faster than driving our own car.

Being "Ah Lians" in Mid Valley, we ended up asking a staff (I forgot who and which lady we asked) about food. We told her that we wanted Chinese food... and she recommended us to go down to the lower ground.. gosh, I cannot remember liow... next time I better write down where I went....

Anyway and anyhow, we ended up looking at ...........

Din Tai Fung-Taiwan Restaurant...

ambience something like this...

we ordered just a set ... and shared..
we are small eaters ma...
but actually we want to save our stomach space
for some other food... lol...

first came the appetizers...

followed by a big bowl of fried rice...

3 siew loong pau (mini dragon dumpling)

this needs technique..
slurping technique!! hahaha...

see the juice from the dumpling?
that is the specialty of this dumpling..

lastly and not least, for an additional RM3
I ordered this "or nee" yam pudding...

On the way out, I went to "tau si" (peek) at the chefs..

see how he held the dumpling..
so near to his face...
hope no sweat.. :))
