Din Tai Fung At South Coast Plaza Opens TODAY!

On your mark

They were originally scheduled to open this past spring, right? But you know how it goes. Especially from a highly anticipated chain moving into a coveted corner location. When you knock McDonald's down, it better be for a gold mine.

With Uniqlo scheduled to open after Labor Day (there's currently a pop-up store by the carousel) and Din Tai Fung welcoming the Asian invasion, the Sanrio wing of South Coast Plaza will never be the same again. Kudos to long-term planning.


Architectural features include a centrally located exhibition kitchen (talk about focus on their faces!) and patio the size of our dorm room. The 8,000 square foot establishment is a sprawling ode to the Yang family's signature soup dumplings. If you can't find a table in their 175 seat dining room, try to secure a spot in the modest bar and lounge. Guests on standby will be contacted via text message. At least you can get some shopping done while you wait.

Open at 11 a.m. during the week and 10 a.m. on weekends, they close at 10 p.m. (9 p.m. on Sunday). After Labor Day, take out will be available. However, there are no reservations accepted. We suggest a snack before heading over.

I wanna go, but not looking forward to the wait - like, I work close by, but I have no idea if my lunch break will be long enough.
