While most of its big name new restaurants are lined up to launch in Westfield UTC this fall, it will be a slightly longer wait for dumpling specialists Din Tai Fung. As part of the shopping center’s multi-million expansion and remodel, there will be plenty of fresh food and drink options to celebrate come October including Shake Shack, Great Maple, True Food Kitchen and more, but a rep for the Taiwanese chain confirmed that it will not be opening in Westfield UTC until 2018.

Most famous for its soup dumplings, called xiao long bao, Din Tai Fung is also known for the perpetual crowds that line up at its locations across the globe. The opening of its first San Diego outpost, which will clock in at 10,000-square-feet, follows the restaurant’s expansion into Westfield Century City in Los Angeles which is due to debut in late 2017.
