Din Tai Fung — the dumpling hotspot helmed by Aaron Yang — is opening its eighth SoCal location at 395 Santa Monica Pl, Santa Monica, CA 90401, home of the outdoor shopping mall at the south end of the Third Street Promenade.
The incoming outpost will reside on the third floor of Santa Monica Place, across from the incoming Arte Museum. According to Eater, “reps for the restaurant were not able to offer a timeline for opening just yet.”
The menu provides dumplings, of course, stuffed with an array of fillings like chicken, pork, crab, and even chocolate, as well as wontons, greens, noodles, soups, wok-fried rice, desserts, and teas & booze.
