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.

My friend bought a discount voucher for Shi Lin- order and eat P500.00 worth of food but pay P250.00 only. We didn't know what to expect. It was quite a small place located in Lucky Chinatown Mall. Choices were different noodle soups, dumplings and two kinds of dumpling desserts. We ordered braised beef noodle soup, xiao lung bao dumplings, sauteed spinach and taro dumplings. Since our order exceeded P500.00, we had to add a little more. It was a very pleasant dining experience. The food was great for sharing; the ambiance inviting for a longer stay to chit-chat with friends. The staff were friendly and helpful too. We didn't know what to expect when my friend first bought the voucher but now we're glad she did.
