Din Tai Fung Has Limited Edition Ginger Chocolate Lava Buns For $2++

Din Tai Fung ginger chocolate lava buns

‘Tis the season where Christmas specials are coming at us from all directions. Amidst turkeys and log cakes, Din Tai Fung has managed to stand out from the festive crowd with their new seasonal offering: their Steamed Chocolate Nutty Ginger Lava Bun, available from 22 November to 31 December at all DTF outlets islandwide.

Priced at $2++, this seasonal item follows hot on the heels of their last limited offering, the XXL Pork and Scallop Tang Bao. In the spirit of Christmas, the bao contains a ginger chocolate lava that oozes upon the first bite. On the taste front, these are meant to be chocolatey, with a subtle spiciness from the ginger—think chocolate-covered gingerbread, but pillowy soft.

The bao skin is thin, and mochi-like, akin to Din Tai Fung’s usual array of dessert bao on the menu. Chopped roasted peanuts top each bao for textural contrast.

While availability is cited till 31 December, do note that these are while stocks last, so head down and try them as early as you can.
