Din Tai Fung

This is not your regular pancake! Din Tai Fung’s ICONIC Crispy Golden Prawn Pancake 脆皮虾饼 is a one of the most delicious “pancakes” we’ve eaten in a long time… made with minced prawn meat, vegetables and topped with a crispy bean curd skin - these pancakes are fried to perfection and give a crisp exterior but soft and bouncy texture with each bite. Make sure you order a few steaming hot baskets of signature soup dumplings and a bowl of tasty noodles or fried rice to accompany your pancakes. Absolute foodie heaven!
