Oh, yes. Din Tai Fung, purveyor of the famed Shanghai-style xiao long bao soup dumplings that burst in your mouth upon consumption, is coming to South Coast Plaza.

Arcadia's Best reports that the 8,000 square-foot restaurant won't be here until April 2014. Sigh. Still, SCP sounds like an ideal spot for the Taipei-based chain--you can peruse fancy shops while waiting two hours for your beautifully sealed orbs filled with piping minced pork. Rumor has it that the restaurant will be located in the Sears wing.

The Costa Mesa location will mark the fifth Din Tai Fung in the U.S. Two are in Arcadia, one's in Seattle and one is being built at Americana at Brand in Glendale.
