You don’t need us to tell you about Din Tai Fung. It’s the dumpling place your mom discovered at the Americana and won’t stop talking about. Basically, you line up, you wait a long time, you eat soup dumplings. We’ve had better soup dumplings (with much shorter waits), but what we’re here for are the far superior spicy shrimp and pork wontons. This location is much like the Glendale one, off-menu chocolate XLB dumplings you will be ordering for dessert included. Unless you’ve got your heart set on the Din Tai Fung experience, there are way better dumpling houses in the area than this one.
