Prawn Mayonnaise
I'm not usually a big fan of Din Tai Fung, not being biased, but it never really caught my eye.. The very first Din Tai Fung started as a humble stall in Taiwan in the year 1974, and since then, it has expanded its restaurants worldwide including Japan, China, Indonesia, Australia etc. I didn't try it when I was in China, maybe because there were other restaurants that seemed more appealing but we were quite tired walking around and wanted to get a quick easy dinner so we came here..

Prawn Mayonnaise
Although this dish may be simple, I have loved it since young, Prawn Mayonnaise, is basically cooked prawn covered in Mayo, some may add pineapple cubes or so as a touch up or add black sesame seed. Some restaurants do use various mayo so it some may taste sweeter or so on than another. This was okay, but I found that the more you eat it, you might feel sick because of the mayo.
Homemade tofu with 3 different types of mushrooms
'Homemade Tofu with 3 different types of mushrooms' was quite an interesting dish. The tofu was lightly fried, topped with bits of seaweed which I found to be quite interesting. The sauce was quite nice but could have been a bit too salty. The mushrooms and the vegetables was just okay, nothing special.
'Shanghainese Smoked Fish' was fish fillets battered and covered in soy sauce. I found that the fish itself was quite nice but the fact that it was covered all over with the soy sauce, ruined the crispiness and the smoked fish's flavour.
