eats - din tai fung

spent this past weekend in west covina, so friday night's first order of business was to finally try the xiao long bao (soup dumplings) at din tai fung. i've been a big fan since my friends took me to a bomb @$$ spot in NY's chinatown a few years back and have been trying to find an equivalent out here.

we ordered the standard pork dumplings and the first thing that jumps out at you is the size - these were almost half in size as the ones i had, so there was less soupy goodness in each bite. nevertheless, the order of 10 were delicious and hit the spot. i'm still trying to figure out just how they make these darn things...
