Din Tai Fung at The Gardens Launching New 10 Latest Taiwanese Dishes

Anyone up for Xiu Long Bao? I’m always a big fans of Xiu Long Bao and in Malaysia we are grateful to have 2 type of Xiu Long Bao which one is from Shang Hai (Dragon-i) and DIN TAI FUNG (Taiwan). Since DTF opened, I never really have a chance to go and try out the ones in The Gardens Mid Valley Megamall. Everytime I get turned off by the que. Currently that is the only outlet in Malaysia.

I had mine in Singapore Orchard Road outlet previously cause I travel there for business trip. So basically this is the first time I get to try the Malaysia outlet. I am very honored to be invited for a food tasting session and meet the owner of Malaysia franchise Ms Lim Meng Lu via the intro by my fellow blogger Sean from Makanlah.
