The popular Din Tai Fung (DTF) recently opened a location in the renovated Westfield UTC Mall of San Diego. Foodies have long been raving about this place but the drive to O.C. and long lines kept me away. That is, until now. A friend invited me to join a mid-week lunch during the first week and I excitedly accepted. Currently, the restaurant is in soft opening mode and only takes online yelp reservations, with most of October already booked! It will return to a first-come first-serve basis after 2 months or so.
