Din Tai Fung

A trendy Taiwanese restaurant located on the lower grand floor of Dubai Mall. According to the New York Times, Din Tai Fung is considered one of the top restaurants. It has a long history dating back to Taiwan forty years ago.

The main focus of Din Tai Fung’s dishes is the use of fresh ingredients that are the essence of their dishes. Using simple culinary styles, the recipes are healthy and elegantly plated. The burst of flavour brings delight to every served customer.

The whole dilemma of Din Tai Fung is the enjoyment of delicious healthy food. Starting with the appetiser. Try the Chinese Black Mushroom Salad if you are too confused about ordering your appetiser during your first visit.

The salad is not the usual green leafy salad you are used to. Instead, it is dark in colour, made with wood ear mushrooms soaked with a sauce that has a citrusy taste, and finally garnished with goji berries.

One of the things to try out is their Mutton Pot Stickers, which consists of a pan-fried dumpling that holds minced mutton and celery, all covered with a crisp layer. And when it comes to the soups menu, go with their Hot and Sour Soup. Initially, a Chinese soup made with chicken broth, shredded chicken, pressed tofu and bamboo shoot.

It has a savoury and pleasantly sour taste, offering the chicken flavour with a variety of vegetables, resulting in a great harmony of different flavours.
