More tasty stuff from Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐)

This would be a second part to an older post on a couple of my favourites from Din Tai Fung. Not to worry though, there aren't going to be many parts.

The above is their roselle drink (洛神花冰); made with a frozen ball of roselle tea. This was one drink packed with flavours. The first time I had them, I could have sworn that I had subsequently emptied at least two full cups of tea onto the ice to make two full glasses of roselle flavoured iced tea after I had finished the drink. Very nice. Exceptional even when one is parched.

These are dried red dates stuffed with chewy glutinous rice (红枣圆). They're from the small plates/appetizers section of the menu, but could have easily been a dessert as well. For some reasons, I like them.

What I felt was underrated were their steamed vegetable and pork buns (菜肉包). These savoury but light tasting buns were stuffed with a lot more vegetables than pork, but that was what I liked about them.
