Din Tai Fung Is Coming To South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, California – April 2014

I guess in my excitement last week in discovering a new Din Tai Fung coming to Southern California, I missed the news, or it was not paying too much attention that another location in Costa Mesa was opening up as well in the future:

DTF_XLB_Flickr_ScaredykatDin Tai Fung, purveyor of the famed Shanghai-style xiao long bao soup dumplings that burst in your mouth upon consumption, is coming to South Coast Plaza. Arcadia’s Best reports that the 8,000 square-foot restaurant won’t be here until April 2014. … The Costa Mesa location will mark the fifth Din Tai Fung in the U.S. Two are in Arcadia, one’s in Seattle and one is being built at Americana at Brand in Glendale.”

It still boggles my mind that Southern California and Seattle (Bellevue) have a Din Tai Fung, yet there are no announced plans to open one in the San Francisco Bay Area.
