 Have been passing by DaXi several times everytime I'm in VivoCity but have never set a time to eat at this Asian fusion restaurant. By going through their menu, I realised that they offer several Taiwanese-style items such as Braised Pork Rice and Egg Crepe.


I guess these Signature Dumplings were quite popular as many tables do have them ordered. They are handmade daily and come in 3 variations, Original Pork, Salted Egg Pork and Japanese Mushroom, served in 5 pieces per plate. They are cooked in different styles too, chicken broth, boiled or pan-fried. 

We had the Pan Fried version and the serving looked unique with its promising circular crispy base, sheltering the 5 pieces of Dumplings.

The dumplings were plump and encased with juicy minced meat fillings. They don't look very greasy and I'm glad that they tasted good.


Another Taiwanese Staple that we could not help but order was their Lu Rou Fan aka Braised Pork Belly Rice. We topped the bowl of rice with a braised egg at an additional dollar. The consistency of the braised sauce used for the pork belly was great. The meat and fats ratio from the pork belly was good too.

The Egg Roll is another item not to be missed. We had the Ham Cheese flavour and it was yummy. The roll was thin, wrapping up slice of ham and cheese together. Savoury taste with the sweet-tasting sauce drizzled on it.

I was expecting Taro Taste but was quite shock as it tasted of sweet potato with grass jelly instead. Nevertheless, the drink still tasted good with Grass Jelly, refreshing and cooling.

The Grilled Teriyaki Chicken was crispy and succulent. It was served in a long place with some pickles, rice and salad drizzled with roasted sesame sauce.

With DaXi seen in quite a number of malls, I think it will not be my last time visiting them for we are a fan of Taiwanese Cuisine too.
