Din Tai Fung Dumpling House, Arcadia, CA

Din Tai Fung Dumpling House Restaurant Review

: Rethink that vacation to Taiwan and head to this Arcadia mini-mall dumpling spot. The bustling, minimally decorated restaurant is a branch of a famous Taipei-based dumpling house. The compact menu features approximately 50 options: delicate steamed dumplings, nourishing soups and a variety of vegetables served in various incarnations. The house specialty is xiaolongbao, or small soupy dumplings, little pillows tinctured with pork and filled with hot, savory consommé. There is also an assortment of northern Chinese dumplings and sweet treats, like the longevity peach, a steamed baozi filled with black sesame paste or mashed lotus seeds. Din Tai Fung is justifiably popular, so expect a wait for one of the highly coveted tables, and be sure to start filling out your order form before you get seated. This is not a place for lingering.
