Wallflower Weekly Finds, 244

I finally got to try soup dumplings at Din Tai Fung.

Din Tai Fung dumplings

I’ve heard so much about this place over the years but never had the chance to go. Or more like, I didn’t feel like waiting in line for hours to eat dumplings. But since it was a weekday, and we were there around opening, the wait was just 15-20 minutes, which is reasonable to me.

The dumplings were amaaazing. There were different ones you can choose from, but I personally like the original the most. Sometimes classic is best. If you get the chance, definitely give it a try.

    DTF is an amazing chain. Too bad in the U.S. there is a long wait to get in. These places exist all over Asia with usually no waiting time. Make sure you hop into one of them on a future trip!
