The long-awaited arrival of Din Tai Fung’s Southcenter outpost came to an end on Friday at 6 p.m., when the ribbon was cut on the fourth Seattle-area restaurant for the international dumpling chain.

Din Tai Fung originated in Taiwan and has expanded its dumpling empire to 11 other countries including the United States. The company’s third location opened at Pacific Place last month, on level four of the shopping center. There are also restaurants in Bellevue and at University Village.

Din Tai Fung consistently draws long lines for its xiao long bao, or soup dumplings. Other popular menu items include pot stickers, wontons, fried rice, soups, and fried noodles.

Din Tai Fung now has as many locations as local chainlet and Eater 38 member Dough Zone Dumpling House, which opened its fourth Eastside branch in November. Dough Zone, of course, is planning a much-anticipated Seattle expansion with a fifth restaurant in the works for the International District.
