xiao long bao and more!

Din Tai Fung is a great restaurant for Shanghainese cuisine. In Shanghai, it wasn't so kid friendly. There weren't a lot of kids and you didn't hear the babies crying and kids playing like you could in another Chinese restaurant.

Xiao long bao (shal lung baul) is Din Tai Fung's speciality. They are dumplings with different kinds of soups and meat inside. To eat it, first you take a little bite and suck the hot juice out. Then pop it in your mouth and taste the rainbow of flavors. The American branch is in Arcadia. For dessert, there are black sesame buns and red bean dumplings. The New York Times listed it as one of the ten best restaurants in the world!

thanks for the comments, keep them coming

"Nice review, Leo! I'm impressed. See if you can get your Mom to take you to Pina's Bistro, which is one of my favorites, in Tustin. I can also recommend Basilic and Marche Moderne as two other favorites for you to check out. Best wishes and keep up the good blogging."


Michele recommends the Crab Cooker in Tustin for Seafood. She thinks it is much better!

California Fish Grill

California Fish Grill

If you want quick good food come here. The fast service is wonderous. The food is all appropriately spiced and cooked. Nothing over done and nothing under done. The tacos may be a little bit to “green” if you know what I mean if I ask for shrimp tacos I want more shrimp not so much greens (which was delish!) Every thing else is wonderful!

The atmosphere is indistinct except it is very kid friendly.There is also a lot of kids. My mama was very satisfied with her ahi tuna salad and my baba thought that the spice and butter obscured the taste so he could not tell if it was high quality swordfish or not. In all this is a moderately good restaurant. Open from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm from monday to sunday.

The outdoor seating area has a great view -- of a parking lot!
