Din Tai Fung is a chain of dim sum restaurants from Taiwan (though fiancée insists it’s a dumpling restaurant, and she should know). 2 of its Hong Kong outlets have won Michelin stars. I visited the branch in the Marina Bay Sands Mall. The first thing you notice is the queue – we had to take a number and wait about 30 minutes for service during which we noted down which meals we wanted.

You can also watch the dim sum being prepared through a window into the kitchen. It’s quite cramped inside as they’re trying to get as many covers as they can, but not uncomfortably so.

The food is ok, but limited for vegetarians. The filling in the different types of vegetable dumplings was very similar. I did like the century eggs and the ginger and vinegar blend to dip the dumplings. I really enjoyed the roselle juice, which came with a frozen ball of the drink to cool it down; this doubled as a dessert! Meat and fish eaters were happy with their pork and shellfish dumplings.
