It has been a while since we visited DTF and upon a closer look at the menu, we realised that prices has gone up at least 10%! Wow!
Our fav Oriental Salad in Special Vinegar Dressing 小菜 costs $5 each now!
Updated Menu with the new pricing. A check with the service staff revealed that the price adjustments were done a few months ago (around CNY)! That is how long we have not patronised DTF! 😛
As usual, I am on the lookout for things that are not on the usual menu as the normal ones are really too normal. :p And this time round, there are 2 promotions.
Epitome of Fine Taste – Steamed Truffle & Pork Dumpling and Steamed Truffle Chicken Soup.
Truffle lovers will definitely love this but it does come at a price 😛
Another promotion with UOB Credit Card for the month of 1st July – 31 August 2015 where you get 15% off the Feisty Feast of Steamed Chilli Crab Dumpling, $8 for 4 pieces.
Our order Chit where items that are not available are strikeout
Our orders – Enough to feed a family of 4! Other than the 2 promo items ordered by me, the rest were placed by PB! @@!
Still love the standard of their finely shredded ginger with Vinegar ( 2 portions of ginger here)
Oriental Salad in Special Vinegar Dressing, $5
The taste seems to be a little different to me but PB said it was the same. I still love the texture and healthiness of this dish though!
Steamed Pork Ribs Soup 排骨汤, $11.80.
Lacking the familiar taste and smell. Perhaps it had insufficient time in the boiler.
PB’s Fav and must order – Shanghai Drunken Chicken 上海醉鸡, $8.80

Next came the Steamed Chilli Crab Dumpling 辣椒螃蟹小笼包, $8 for 4 pieces
The skin was so thin that mine broken and all the juice leaked out 🙁

Though the crab based broth looks red and fiery, fret not for it is not spicy at all.

This is supposed to be 40% bigger that the original Steamed Pork Dumplings but since we did not order the steamed pork dumplings, there was no basis for comparison 😛 If you love your crab, this is one pretty delicious XLB but I wish there could be more broth in it!
Next up was the Steamed Truffle and Pork Dumplings 松露小笼包, $5 each

It was so aromatic that you can smell it once they lift off the cover! You can almost see the truffle beneath the skin wrapped in 18 exquisite folds.

There are slices of black truffle on top of the premium pork mixed with truffle too! Truffle High! Yums!
Fried Rice with Shredded Pork and Egg 肉丝蛋饭, $11.30
I feel that DTF does one of the best Egg Fried Rice. Be sure to order any of the egg fried rice item for your carbs fill when you are here!
