Din Tai Fung, the infamous dumpling house originating in Taiwan, and known for their Xaio Long Bao, or soup dumplings, has an outlet in the City of Dreams center.

I was feeling kind of under the weather so I really wanted some soup.

Wonton Soup

The Shrimp and Pork Wonton soup has a rich, chicken broth and plenty of plump and juicy dumplings. Although very good and satisfying, it doesn’t hold a candle to the wonton soup at New King Restaurant.

Braised Beef Soup

The Braised Beef soup, has a rich, fatty soup base that envelopes your mouth like a warm kiss. Unfortunately, it really has no taste since it was sorely under seasoned. The key to the richness of the soup is the big, chunks of fatty beef which releases all of its collagen as it braises. The meat to fat ratio of the beef was not to my liking however.

Fried Pork Chop

The Fried Pork Chop is pounded out to into a thin cutlet. It is then breaded and fried. The pork was well seasoned, but a little on the greasy side.

Shrimp and Pork Shao Mai

The Shrimp and Pork Shao Mai is beautifully presented, and look like little shrimp soldiers getting ready for battle. The skin is nice and chewy, and there is plenty of filling.

Long Beans

The Long Beans with Ground Pork is a good dish. The beans are pliant yet still have some texture to them. The pork adds some nice flavor, while the garlic adds a nice little kick at the end.

This was a good, but not great meal. I am probably in the minority, but I don’t see what the fuss is all about over Din Tai Fung. In Los Angeles, the wait times are horrendous, and the prices are very high.
