Steamed Shanghai-style mouthwatering dumplings — known as xiao long bao — are Din Tai Fung's signature dish. It's grown to a world-famous restaurant empire since its inception decades ago in Taiwan as a cooking oil retail shop. Today, its restaurants have won accolades all over the world, everything from the New York Times, which has named Din Tai Fung one of the planet's best restaurants, to the Los Angeles Times, which has named it one of Southern California's top restaurants overall, to the Michelin Guide, which has adorned its restaurants with the highly coveted one star.
Now you can enjoy the critically acclaimed dumplings right here in Costa Mesa's South Coast Plaza in the Sears wing. The restaurant features an exhibition kitchen showcasing dumplings in preparation by trained chefs.
