Time Out says

Purists insist that the original Taipei location is superior to the Singaporean outpost. But it is hard to find fault with the fab xiao long bao: tiny rounds of pleated pastry filled with sweet minced pork and fragrant soup. Each silken mouthful is an explosion of flavours – sweet, salty and sour, gingery and vinegary. Before you know it, a whole basket has been consumed. The braised beef noodles are also superb.

In late 2010,  Din Tai Fung introduced its new East-meets-France truffle xiao long bao. Inside is an additional shaving of the heady black fungi imported directly from France. This variation is available now while others – the chicken xiao long bao, angled gourd and shrimp xiao long bao, and the fish dumpling – will be available in the first quarter of 2011.

My friends and I visited the DTF in Marina Bay Sands mall for our dinner on our penultimate night. We had a huge craving for dim sum and because we hadn't had lunch, we didn't hold back on the ordering... we got a bit carried away and ended up ordering almost 50 dumplings to share between the 3 of us. They arrived, steaming and backed full of a variety of fillings, including crab, prawn, beancurd and yam. The yam buns in particular were delicious as we ordered a second round of those (eyes probably bigger than our bellies... though by the end, only just!)

It's very well priced, and the bill came to around $100 (£50) including a few drinks.
