Charcoal grilled bak kwa fried rice from Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐)

Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐), charcoal grilled bak kwa fried rice

Just came across this bak kwa fried rice from Din Tai Fung while browsing food delivery recently. I wonder how different this was from the "packaged from a central kitchen" boxes that are sold at Toast Box. DTF's fried rice is at a level where eating at the restaurant and having them through delivery is a different experience. It's obviously better at the restaurant and today's portion are a bit more greasy than I'm used to.

I would have given this a thumbs up if there were more bak kwa in the fried rice. Also, calling those bak kwa 'charcoal grilled' on the menu raises expectations. In my opinion, those expectations fell a little short.
