The Dubai Mall branch of the famed Taiwanese restaurant will boast views of the Dubai Fountain.

Dumpling lovers in Dubai will soon have another happy place, as a third branch of world-famous Taiwanese chain Din Tai Fung is set to open in The Dubai Mall.

The restaurant, which already has outlets in Mall of the Emirates and Al Ghurair Centre in Deira, will open in the Fashion Avenue extension at the end of December, a spokesperson told What’s On.

The new restaurant will face the Dubai Fountain, so you’ll be able to watch the water spectacle while slurping on their famous soup dumplings.

That’s not the only opening Asian food fans have to look forward to. The people behind Din Tai Fund are also bringing Han Shi Fu, a trendy Asian fusion gastropub, to Aloft City Centre Deira sometime in the near future.

They also plan to open a restaurant called Bado Chinese at La Mer, which is described as an Asian and Middle Eastern fusion restaurant.
