Din Tai Fung Dumpling House review image

Din Tai Fung

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 lineup including boiled wontons in spicy sauce, potstickers, pork buns, and sesame noodles are great too, but we all know you’re here for those xiao long bao—so get several orders, and don't forget to add the dry-fried garlic green beans, a.k.a. the best way to consume vegetables that we can think of.
