Din Tai Fung is known for the best soup dumplings (Xiao Long Bao or Juicy Pork Dumplings) in LA (or Arcadia, actually).
There are two locations literally right next to each other, and I have no clue which one I went to. I’m assuming they both serve the same delicious dim sum fare.
You obviously have to get the Juicy Pork (Soup) Dumplings, of course. They were smaller than I’ve seen but delicious pork and broth inside. Trust me, it’s easy for these to be bland if done wrong.
Other standouts were the Pork and Rice Shu Mai (little purses filled with goodness) and one of our party really dug the seaweed salad.
I also enjoyed the spicy noodles. Super simple but effective.
We arrived here just around opening on a Saturday (10:30 a.m.) and there already was a line forming outside. That’s how popular it is.
Dumplings for breakfast! Who knew? Well…everybody, it seems.
