Din Tai Fung going Americana

Arcadia’s Frank Yang is expanding his world famous Din Tai Fung Dumpling House restaurant to feature new shops at mega-developer Rick Caruso’s Americana at Brand in Glendale and later at upscale South Coast Plaza. The news comes on the heels of Tom Cruise stopping by Din Tai Fung in Taipei during a publicity tour for his new “Oblivion” movie to get some hands-on instruction from Yang’s brother on preparing the signature dumplings…. (Story continues following YouTube video below…)

Yang says Caruso, who spent several years in Arcadia pursuing his proposed Shops of Santa Anita, has been pursuing Yang to open one of his restaurants at his Americana for four years. Yang, who moved to Arcadia in 1991 to raise his family, wasn’t ready to say yes to Caruso in the past several years. But his son is graduating this spring with a degree in hospitality, and Yang told that he expects his son, who advised his father to expand his business, will be helping him do just that.
