Free Lunch- Eating At Din Tai Fung

Labels:

eatingout As a shareholder, sometimes eating out is also an exercise to find out more about how your shares are doing.

One of the companies under the company ‘Breadtalk’, this is a restaurant that is doing quite well in Singapore by all accounts.

Din Tai Fung is voted one of the world’s top 10 restaurants by New York Times. 

As standard of good restaurants here, there is inevitably a queue during meal times, so my wife and me found one at the Raffles City branch. We ordered what we wanted as we waited for a table. And unlike banks, there was the standard few seats to wait as the table is being cleared.

The food and service was impeccable. Fast, good and relatively affordable compared to some restaurants which charged high prices but fail to deliver. Their signature dish, Xiao Long Bao, is one to try, as is their fried rice, which is superb.

It seems that Breaktalk group is doing quite well, with its bakery business as well as the food court business doing brisk sales. Their marquee business must be the Din Tai Fung restaurants with inevitable long queues at their branches at Bishan and Raffles City.

As we were eating, I told my wife that the price of the meal is free as it was reflected in the rise of the share prices since we bought it as well as the dividends we received. Think it helped her become more willing to order a few more dishes.

I think I should invest in more such companies :)
