Din Tai Fung
Din Tai Fung - xiaolongbao
Everywhere else you might find this Michelin-starred xiaolongbao chain, the lines will be wrapped out the door and around the corner. This branch, located in the upper level of the Mall of the Emirates, never seems to have wait times longer than five minutes. No pork fillings, unfortunately, but the chicken and beef ones more than made up for it, and they still have the famous black truffle xiaolongbao (which come singly instead of six to an order like all the other baos, but are worth it nonetheless).
