It was mad crowded as usual with long queues everywhere at Junction 8, especially DTF. I have actually called in a few weeks ago to sort of let them know that I would be having a birthday dinner here. they do not allow reservations actually but they have said that they would take note and try to let me have a table ASAP.
So I was there with mil at 630 (it was already crowded outside with many people waiting) and I managed to get in at about 650pm without joining the queue system. Well I still had to wait 20min but thankful that DTF has tried their best even though they strictly don’t take in reservations.
So.. Here are the food pics!
These are the complimentary seasonal Chuan style dumplings. Spicy like the usual ones with chilli oil, quite good but I still prefer the usual ones 🙂
Tada, the usual dumplings in chilli oil which I LOVE!!
Joanne’s recommendation- prawn pancake. Really quite good – juicy, soft and addictive!
Ordered this for Al who has to eat every meal with soup..
Haha I cannot live without this la. We had the xiao Cai too, but I didn’t manage to snap a pic of that.
This is duck in crispy skin. Al likes it too.
One of the staples. Don’t the prawns look lovely?
The other staple – fried rice with pork chop. Half-eaten already heehee.
Of cos we ordered the xiao long bao x 10 and also the shrimp dumplings x 6. But I was entertaining Am so didn’t manage to snap pics. Overall the dinner was just nice for 4 adults and 1 child.
And we sang a birthday song softly amidst the diners in DTF (couldn’t get any louder cos it was just me and hubby singing.. Both grandmas didnt sing lol) and cut birthday cake for Al in the end.
Disney princess Swensons cake with 3 flavour – choc vanilla and strawberry – the kind of cake u get when u can’t make up your mind lol.
This is how it looks like inside. No I didn’t eat the cake.
It was a simple celebration with Al’s favourite people and favourite food. Yay!
