Xiaolongbao lovers, listen up.

Taiwanese restaurant Din Tai Fung (DTF) announced earlier today that it will be giving away PHP10,000 (US$188.63) gift certificates to lucky winners on Nov. 22 in honor of their Xiaolongbao Day.

That is, if interested foodies do the restaurant’s DTF cheer, which they show through an elaborate video below:

The mechanics are simple: post a video doing the Din Tai Fung cheer on Facebook or Instagram starting today until Nov. 19.

Tag Din Tai Fung Philippines on Facebook or @dintaifungph on Instagram with the hashtag #DTFCheerChallenge, and tag three friends in the post.

Five of the best videos will be awarded PHP10,000 (US$188.63) worth of Din Tai Fung gift certificates each. Winners can claim their GCs on DTF Xiaolongbao Day on Nov. 22 at any of the branches (i.e. SM Megamall in Pasig City, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, or Rockwell in Makati City).

Din Tai Fung Philippines revealed in a Facebook post yesterday that it will celebrate the day with prizes and surprises. Does that mean there will be more giveaways?

Last year, the restaurant gave Filipinos a treat when they priced their three-piece basket of Chocolate Lava Xiaolongbao at PHP1 (US$0.02).

The Taiwanese restaurant first opened in Manila in December 2015.  It is popular for its xiaolongbao — steamed soup-filled dumplings. Forbes claimed that the restaurant had “the world’s greatest dumplings.”

The Asian casual-dining destination has over 119 branches in 14 countries which include the US, Australia, Japan, Dubai, and the Philippines, according to its website.
