They will be opening the restaurant at 11am from Monday to Friday and at 10am on Saturday and Sunday. I bet you the line is going to be long tomorrow, the first day. I will definitely not go until the crowd had settle down.  When I was there today, they were closed for special private event.

Update 6/11/2014: I was at South Coast Plaza today and the restaurant is still under renovation.  It is almost a year since I first saw it and until now, it is still not opened.

Update 2/25/2014: I was at South Coast Plaza last week and noticed they changed the signage to say “Opening in Summer 2014”.

Good news for dumpling lovers in Orange County.  The famous Din Tai Fung will be opening their first restaurant in Orange County soon.  You will be able to find it at South Coast Plaza as early as April 2014.  It is replacing the McDonald’s location near Sears.  This is a Michelin Guide recommended restaurant.


I am very excited about this restaurant. I especially love their ‘xiao long bao‘ and other small dishes and would be glad to eat there every so often. Unfortunately, the nearest location at this moment is at Arcadia. It is about an hour drive from Irvine to Arcadia with no traffic.

Definitely a place that we will be frequently visiting once it is opened.  I just hope the pricing is reasonable but judging from its new location at South Coast Plaza, it will probably an upscale Asian fine dining type of restaurant.  Doesn’t matter to me, I will definitely still go there a few times a year.
