We recently had dinner at Din Dai Fung in First Markham Place. This Din Dai Fung is not affiliated with the famous Din Dai Fung from Taiwan. The menu however is very similar to the original and is always packed with diners.
Xiao Long Bao
The Xiao Long Bao was quite good. The skin was not as thin as I'd like but the filling was quite flavorful.
Crab Meat Xiao Long Bao
The Chive filling was nicely seasoned but the skin was a little too tough.
Stir Fried Greens
This was so-so for me. The Jelly Fish was rather tasteless.
Stir-Fried Nian Gao
A dish I thoroughly enjoy in China but was really bad here. The Nian Gao was very soft unlike the one's in China which are served Al Dente in texture.
Stuffed Glutinous Rice
My favorite dish of the night. The Meatballs were soft and flavorful and the broth was also really good.
Boiled Pork Belly Slices
Another favorite dish of mine. The Pork Belly Slices were cooked just right and had a nice combination of fat and meat. It was great with the Oyster Garlic Sauce.
Braised Beef Noodles
The Broth was a little too bland for my liking and the Beef a little tough.
The food was definitely not as good as the original Din Dai Fung but is decent compared with similar Dumpling Restaurants in Toronto.
