Enjoy an authentic taste of Taiwan in Mall of the Emirates
If you’re in the mood for a taste of the Far East, look no further than the shopping malls in Dubai, where you’ll find plenty of tasty dining options. However, the venue on everyone’s lips is Din Tai Fung.
Hailing from Taiwan, and with branches across America, Hong Kong and Singapore to name a few, Din Tai Fung is one of the latest restaurant chains to open in the new wing of Mall of the Emirates.
The restaurant features two dining areas: an airy section overlooking the shops or a more intimate space near the open-kitchen with views of all the fast-paced culinary action.
You’ll be in for a real feast at this popular Taiwanese spot. At Din Tai Fung the emphasis is mostly on Chinese snack food with a twist. Think delicious dumplings, fried rice, noodles and wontons.
We find this type of cuisine best enjoyed family-style, with plenty of sharing plates and bites to dip into. Follow our lead and kick off your meal with a mixed basket of Din Tai Fung’s specialty xiaolongbao (soup dumplings). Also order the shrimp and veggie wontons, followed by the hot red bean bun, chilli crispy chicken and the sautéed spinach bok choy.
Next up, you must try their mouthwatering tomato and tofu egg flower soup – you won’t be left disappointed.
If you still have room for dessert, opt for the candied sticky rice along with a brew of Chinese tea.
