At Din Tai Fung, you will wait anywhere from 45 minutes to a couple of hours for a table while a vortex of small children shriek around you. Luckily, the legendary pork soup dumplings are worth the wait. The rest of the dim sum lineup including boiled wontons in spicy sauce, potstickers, pork buns, and sesame noodles are good, too, but we all know you’re here for those soup dumplings - so get several orders.
