The original Seattle location is in a shopping center, nonetheless, this food is outstanding: Din Tai Fung.

Pick anything on the menu…it is all very good. Be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes…the wait can be as long as 90 minutes or more. You can beat a bit of this by visiting early or late for lunch, etc. They take your cell number and will text you when your table is ready…so do a little shopping at the Amazon store while you wait. The cuisine leans heavily toward xiaolongbao but there is a large selection of dim sum (I’m told by my Chinese friends that this isn’t dim sum since it isn’t Cantonese) and other Chinese staples. Highly recommend the shrimp & pork wontons with spicy sauce, garlic green beans, potstickers and chicken fried rice.

Best Chinese food in Seattle!
