Din Tai Fung Dumpling House is a popular Taiwan-based chain of dumpling shops that got its start in 1958. Today there are locations all throughout Asia, and five in the United States: three in Los Angeles (in Arcadia and Glendale), and two in Seattle (in Bellevue and the University District).

As the name might suggest, Din Tai Fung sells a wide variety of dumplings, with fillings including pork, pork and crab, fish, chicken, vegetable, pork buns, soup dumplings, and shao mai. But there are also a wide variety of appetizers (fried pork chop, pork rice bun, soy noodle salad), soups (braised beef, chicken, wonton, hot and sour), noodles (with minced pork sauce, spicy sauce, pickled mustard seed and shredded pork, plus wontons with sauce), fried noodles (with pork, chicken, or shrimp), fried rice, greens, and desserts, including red bean buns.

If you’re looking for authentic dumplings, Din Tai Fung is the place to go. 

Tips

  • Amazing food, try the string garlic beans and taro dessert dumplings!
  • Waiting for dining at the bar is quicker than dining room and worth it for a party of two.
  • Soup dumplings are a must. However be sure to get a leafy veggie plate, hot and sour soup or beef noodle soup for your table. If you like cold apps, get the cucumber!
  • The juicy pork dumplings and string beans are my staples. Bubble tea is also amazing but $4.50.
  • One of the best restaurants in the county. Look it up. Top items are pork chop fried rice, pork dumplings, and green beans.
