Afternoon Bites with Din Tai Fung & Femina

Last week. me and several Blogger mates was invited by Femina Magazine and Din Tai Fung to event called "Afternoon Bites with Din Tai Fung & Femina" at Din Tai Fung Plaza Senayan. With dress code 'a touch of flower'  Din Tai Fung introduced us their several menus.

Din Tai Fung founded 1st  1958 by couples from Taiwan. The funny thing was, 1st Din Tai Fung was known as Oil shop, not as Xiao Long Bao shop. In Indonesia itself,  Din Tai Fung 1st open their store in 2005. Now Din Tai Fung already several branch in 5 other places beside in Plaza Senayan. So total Din Tai Fung have 6 outlets in Jakarta.

They have an open kitchen concept also. So interesting see the lamp. It's like made from wire.  So unique. Din Tai Fung Plaza Senayan have 2 area, indoor and outdoor. Outdoor only have several tables, considering it took place in the alley. We seated indoor of Din Tai Fung. With theme of  Noodle Bar, the interior is dominated with red and wooden. In Indoor, they have several long bench with it tables, and round tables. Not too spacious, but it was nice.

and here are the menu parade...

Black Currant Bubble Tea & Hot Tea
Black Currant Bubble Tea was quite good, even though not my favorite also. It was a mixed between tea & black currant syrup. The bubble has chewy texture. Kinda nice. 

Vegetable & Chicken Won Ton Soup 32k (4pcs)
What I like about this Won Soup was it so warm when I ate it. It came from the ginger. The ginger taste was so strong. I kinda like this taste. The won ton itself so smooth, the skin a bit thin but still good and didn't break when I  took it with chopstick. The filling, vegetables and chicken, also taste good. It all blend well.

Beef Floss Pancake ala Shanghai 20k
The shape really unique. Round with sesame seed on top. The beef floss (abon) filled all over the dough. This pancake more remind me of cake than a pancake. Worth to try.

Xiao Long Bao Satay
We're so honored to be the 1st peoples who get a chance the to try this  Xiao Long Bao Satay. The skin this but as I mention before, it didn't break even when I took it with chopstick. But this one was not my favorite. As it name, satay, so the filling was satay. Quite unique aight? Curious enough? Just order it. Because it such a limited edition. Only for Ramadhan season hohoo...

Hainanese Rice 12k
Hainanese Rice, so savory, cooked well. It's like they put many spices into the rice. It makes the rice have good taste.

Crispy Fried Enoki Mushroom With Chilli 38k
Order this if you like spicy food. The enoki really crisp, and the chilli and garlic really blend into the enoki. The flour still crisp even when it's not warm any longer.

Smoked Dori Fish Ala Din Tai Fung 45k
The seasoning was too sweet for my liking. The Dori fish also too overcooked. So the texture a bit flabby inside. The portion enough for 2-3 person.

Sauteed Green Bean With Minced Beef 52k
I like this Sauteed green bean. The texture still crisp, but the seasoning blend really well. The minced beef make the flavor more tastier.

Sweet Sour Chicken 50k

They fried the chicken first before seasoning it. It so Chinese Restaurant typical. They make the sour from the pineapple. The sauce also blend well with the chicken. Like it.

Fresh Cut Mango With Mango Ice Cream over Slush Ice 58k / 28k (personal)
The closing for the entire was Fresh Cut Mango With Mango Ice Cream over Slush Ice or Din Tai Fung usually called it with Mango Fantasy. The mango sauce that pour the slush ice really freshening. Not too forget the really smooth and tasty mango ice cream  as a topping. Love it.

Overall, even though Din Tai Fung price a bit high, but I guess it still worth to try, considering they have  several "must try" menus. The service was good. They able to explain every single question that I asked. 

Not too forget Din Tai Fung and Femina Magazine also gave us the goodie bag. So happy... Thanks Din Tai Fung and Femina Magazine \(^o^)/
