Jack Snacks!... Lava Bun at Din Tai Fung

If you've ever read my previous post on Din Tai Fung, you will know I really like the food there. Last Thursday night after having Korean for dinner, my tummy wanted dessert so it was off to Din Tai Fung. There was a poster proclaiming "Lava Bun" and so I had to try one (just one, cause one needs to save room for the tasty Golden Taro Bread with taro ice-cream).

It's daintily sized and contains a runny golden lava which I think is a salted egg custard, the saltiness coming from what tastes like salted duck egg yolk. It's definitely different and I can see myself trying this again, though I think I'd really like it if it was a bit sweeter. Luckily I had the golden taro bread and icecream to take care of that!

The oozy Lava Bun. Thank you to my hand model!

  1. Oohhhh I love Din Tai Fung! The only place I've been is one in Los Angeles. I know there is one in Tokyo too. I can eat a lot of dumplings here. I just went there last January. Wish I can go like once a month. =P

    1. Oh it's a pity you can't have Din Tai Fung's dumplings more often! They really are so good aren't they Nami! :)
