Description

Steps away from a LensCrafters and an American Eagle at Washington Square mall sits Oregon’s first outpost of global food-chain phenom, Din Tai Fung. Die-hard followers come for the world-famous xiao long bao, each folded with precisely 18 pleats and stacked in bamboo steamer baskets at tables crowded with chile-slicked wontons, Chinese sweet buns, and springy seaweed–bean curd salad. The rest of the menu might not change your life, but Din Tai Fung’s strength lies in its ineffable friendliness, care, and consistency, with genuine Chinese food for a wide audience in an upscale-corporate setting—think Michael Jordan’s Dumpling Steakhouse.
