Hope your weekend is full of juicy little dumplings. Xiao long bao, or otherwise.

Spicy Wontons | Din Tai Fung, South Coast Plaza

Favorite. Of all time. Ok, until…see below.

Stir Fried Sticky Rice Cakes | Din Tai Fung, South Coast Plaza

Never had Stir Fried Sticky Rice Cakes at Din Tai Fung before. Taste like a non-spicy Korean Dduk Bok-ki. Didn’t even know they were on the menu. The more you know…

BLACK TRUFFLE Xiao Long Bao | Din Tai Fung, South Coast Plaza

NEW FAVORITE, though it does seem a little extravagant to pay MORE than $20 (?) for only five (5) dumplings. Worth it at least once.

Went Din Tai Fung Dumpling House in South Coast Plaza within a week of its opening.

We got into the line outside along the driveway, not knowing that we were in line to get into another line, to put our names on a list. The wait was a little more than two (2) hours. The opening hype has died down, but the wait can still be that long, if not longer. If you plan ahead though, you can arrive early enough to put your name down then shop around South Coast Plaza until you receive a text message alerting you that the restaurant is ready to seat you.

Airy, clean interior, with outdoor seating as well. Efficient service (once you actually get to sit down!) Food at any location has never disappointed.

    Oh, to make my dim sum look like that. They are tasty, yes, but absolutely hideous in form. Beautiful shots, as always, Sarah. I truly wish we had places like this in Orlando!

    DTF egg fried rice is well known. It’s way better than Panda Express and is my fav takeaway with spicy Wanton.

    Wow! Dumplings. I’ve become a dumpling eater after visiting hongkong. I wish I lived in Costa Mesa. :(
