My must go list has Din Tai Fung 鼎泰豐! Another dreadful drive from LA to Arcadia. Nonethless we are here, I so wish there is one in the Bay Area!
There is no line!!!! Last time we were in LA, we were discouraged by the long line, so we skipped. This time its a weekday and rainy, so we just walk right in. Inside still very packed.
Spicy Wonton in Hot Red Sauce 紅油炒手 – absolutely delicious! Not very spicy and the sauce was just perfect.
A nice warm House Chicken Soup Steamed 元盅土雞湯, very clear chicken soup, chicken was tender with abundance flavor. However, I think the Din Tai Fung I had in Taiwan did better.
Noodle with Spicy Sauce 擔擔麵 – it was good, but does not stand out from the crowd.
The must order! Juicy Pork & Crab Dumplings 蟹粉小籠包 – served piping hot! Perfect size dumplings each filled with hot soup. Soup was simply amazing. Dip the dumplings with soy sauce, vinegar and ginger … there you go!
Sesame Bun 芝麻包 – have to get a sweet dessert bun. Sesame bun was super soft and filled with sesame paste, not overly sweeten. We asked them to cut the bun in half 🙂
