We decided to celebrate Father’s Day in Shi Lin at the Podium. It looks small when viewed from the entrance, but there is a bigger dining area inside. We ordered pretty much the same things we liked in Taipei – Xiao Long Bao, dimsum, pork chop and fried chicken. The Xiao Long Bao was good. The wrapper was a little thicker compared to the ones in Taipei, but the difference was minor. The soup inside was flavorful. We initially ordered 10 pieces, but we ended up ordering another 10 :-) For dimsum, we ordered the shrimp and pork shaomai.The fried rice with pork chop and egg was also good. The pork chop was flavorful and tender. Serving size for the rice was quite big. The server said that it was good for 1 – 2 people. Actually, for us, it was more like good for 3 people. The chicken chop was a little bit dry, though. Just like in Din Tai Fung, they also had an open kitchen where you can watch them make dumplings.
All in all, we loved the food in Shi Lin. We’re glad to have found a solution to our Xiao Long Bao craving nearby.
