One of Taiwan’s most famous restaurants, known for its delicately steamed dumplings just opened at South Coast Plaza in the former McDonald’s on Level 2.

Din Tai Fung serves more than a dozen varieties of dumplings including juicy pork and crab dumplings, vegetarian dumpling, chicken dumplings and dessert dumplings, as well as appetizers like its pork rice bun, fried pork chop, and seaweed and bean curd in vinegar.
