Best Chinese Restaurants in the U.S.
With its flagship restaurant in Taiwan—selected as one of the top 10 restaurants in the world by The New York Times—this Shanghai-style small-plates chain has branched out to Los Angeles and Seattle. The juicy pork dumplings in paper-thin wrappers, simultaneously delicate and intense, are so melt-in-your-mouth delicious that the Arcadia location in Los Angeles opened a second restaurant down the street just to handle the demand. Perhaps best known for its stellar customer service and spotless interiors, Din Tai Fung almost always has a long wait, but those five-spice fried pork chops are worth every minute. dintaifungusa.com
