So I had this dim sum place bookmarked in my smarter-than-me-phone for our next food adventure. Shortly later, the food team were on our way back heading north on the 710 again... on a never ending search for good Chinese food!
the last time, Din Tai Fung was also off of the 10 freeway. It's a trip how many Chinese people live up there. All the restaurants and bakeries really speak out to me though (maybe more like SCREAM out to me) to go back for more and more.
Din Tai Fung was super frickin' busy. The wait was an hour to get seated, but Nalu was napping in the truck and there were TWO
Chinese bakeries in the same parking lot to fend off our hunger. So
while we waited for them to text message us that our table was ready, we
had a couple of pork buns and tried to survive the 103 degree heat.
Just a 20 minute drive up the 710 (yes, I even timed it) on a Sunday morning, you have no excuse but to check this place out. No traffic going either way, it is so worth the drive and eat along the 10 freeway for Chinese/Taiwanese food rather than heading to Downtown L.A's Chinatown.
Check this place out, I recommend it!
