Best Chinese Restaurants in the U.S.
Din Tai Fung Dumpling House
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
