Happy Chinese New Year! 新年快樂!

On the eve the of the new year, I went to get xiao long bao at Din Tai Fung out in Arcadia. This was only the second or third time I’ve been out there I believe. Always delicious.

As this was the day before the Chinese holiday, the wait was pretty long– about forty-five minutes! But definitely worth it. We made sure to quickly leave after paying our bill, as we recall giving the evil-eye to those who sat at their tables after they were done, when we ourselves were in line.
