Nothing beats a nice hot basket of Xiao Long Bao during these rainy days. Luckily, Din Tai Fung is there to answer our cravings.
For our friends over at MOA area, Din Tai Fung recently opened their biggest store in the Philippines in Mall of Asia.
Aside from the signature look of DTF restaurants, they have commissioned artists Reese Lansangan and Mars Bugaoan to bring more life and color to the shop walls. Lansangan’s mixed media collages of historic DTF moments and elements can be found in the main dining area, while Bugaoan’s abstract installations adorn the private dining rooms.
“Reese and Mars are our longtime collaborators at Din Tai Fung Philippines. Their unique pieces can be found in all of our shops, and we purposely set aside space in this new environment for them to echo their work from our earlier locations. The pieces they created for DTF MOA communicate the core message of heritage and tradition that Din Tai Fung stands for,” says Miguel Wylengco, Moment’s Head of Creatives and Design. “We hope that their art can give our diners a sense of place.”
To celebrate the opening of the biggest DTF in the Philippines, the restaurant had taken over the iconic MOA Globe. It will light up with the image of DTF mascot Bao Babe.
