Time Out says

Pasadena’s newest soup dumpling obsession arrived under the most surreal circumstances: a narrow dining room in the hallway of a vaguely English courtyard that quietly soft opened to instant comparisons to Din Tai Fung and earned a Beastie Boys shoutout. Though the newcomer has yet to cement itself among the San Gabriel Valley’s xia long bao elite, its pork and blue crab dumplings are by far the best in Pasadena. Make the meal worth your wait—because yes, there will probably be a wait—with fried rice, crispy dumplings and sauteed string beans with garlic.
