The award-winning, family-owned Din Tai Fung is coming to Disneyland Resort’s Downtown Disney District!
Disney has shared that the Chinese restaurant will serve dishes family-style in “a creative space near our new lawn pavilion” in Downtown Disney.
Din Tai Fung is famous for soup dumplings, which are “hand-crafted right on sight,” at its current locations in Las Vegas, Costa Mesa, and other places in Southern California, Oregon, and Washington. These are in addition to international locations in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Europe, and Thailand.
Current locations feature various soups, many different flavors of dumplings and buns, wontons, noodles, fried rice, and dessert dumplings filled with chocolate, red bean paste, or sweet taro.
Din Tai Fung originally opened in Taipei, Taiwan. According to the restaurant’s website, Mr. Bing-Yi Yang immigrated to Taiwan and opened a shop selling cooking oil. He named the shop Din Tai Fung. He and his wife sold dumplings in their shop as well, called Xiao Long Bao (steamed pork soup dumplings). These dumplings became so popular that Mr. Yang “phased out his oil business” and Din Tai Fung became a full-blown restaurant.
