It’s slated to open in December…

Dumpling lovers: take note. Din Tai Fung, the immensely popular Taiwanese chain will be opening its fourth branch in Dubai, on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah.

The new Din Tai Fung branch will open at the soon-to-open Nakheel Mall on The Palm and is slated to open in December 2019.

Din Tai Fung introduced Dubai to the glorious world of xiao long bao years ago, and now, thanks to its popularity, there are three chains in the city; one in Mall Of The Emirates, another in Al Ghurair Centre and a third in The Dubai Mall.

One of its most famous dish is the fragile, tender soup dumpling delicately hold piping hot broth and chicken/shrimp/truffle meatballs.

You can find other tasty treats on the menu such as the sesame noodles, the crispy wontons, and any of the fried rice dishes.

This ultimate no-frills dining venue is hugely popular, which can sometimes lead to waiting times of up to one hour – but we (and many others) can confirm that it’s well worth the wait.

Nakheel Mall is anticipated to open later this year, adding 350 shops and restaurants to the Palm Jumeirah, as well as an exciting fine dining rooftop plaza.

The 4.5 million square foot destination will also be home to a cinema as well as an array of other exciting leisure attractions. It’s directly attached to Palm Tower, set to open in 2020. The mixed-use skyscraper will serve as luxury residences, a St Regis Hotel, 50th storey infinity pool, acclaimed restaurant SUSHISAMBA and a viewing deck at the very top.
