You won’t find a single Seattlite who doesn’t love Din Tai Fung. If you’re wondering how true the statement is, know that people wait up to two hours for a taste of the famous xiao long bao. Our tip: don’t skip out on the cucumber salad appetizer, it’s the perfect mix of sweet, sour, and refreshing.

Without obnoxious signage and basic decor, Little Ting’s is easy to dismiss. Although a hit-or-miss spot, when you catch the shop on a good day, you’ll know. Our tip: skip the main dishes and focus on spicy handmade noodles, onion pancake, and the pork and chive dumplings.
