Din Tai Fung! Legit.

Din Tai Fung is a great place to get dim sum.  As you walk to your table, you can see the process of how they make their delicious dumplings!  The place had a cool and fun atmosphere.  From the menu, we chose the following to share: wood ear appetizer, noodles with minced pork, shrimp and pork wontons with spicy sauce, sauteed green beans, shrimp and pork shao mai dumplings, shrimp fried noodles, and the juicy pork dumplings –these were my favorite!  When eating the pork dumpling, there was a wonderful broth that accompanied the bite.  In fact, everything was legit and we managed to finish everything!  🙂  We also got some taro buns and red bean buns for dessert.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics of those master pieces.

This place strives on service and quality ingredients, and you can easily tell this when eating here.  This Din Tai Fung is located in Glendale, CA and conveniently located near an outside shopping area –which was a great post-lunch activity.


We made it! 🙂

Look at that juice. Definitely spoon worthy!


And to top it off: a grape slushie boba drink. Perfect!



I make connections every day; it’s not hard for me.  However, for those connections to make it to the next level, well, that’s another story. 🙂  So when I met my friend, Sue, we connected instantly and I have enjoyed every conversation, meal, and just hanging out!  She and her family have welcomed me with open arms AND they enjoy food as much as I do.  I feel like we’ve known each other forever and I am so excited to meet such a great friend.  The first time I came over for dinner, Sue had made a huge Korean dinner.  There was Kalbi (marinated beef), kimchi, japchae, saam (lettuce wraps), and so much more.  We had a great time!


Kimchi. Legit.


Fried Mondu. Super legit.


Kalbi. Legit would be a understatement.


Japchae. The best.
