I think Din Tai Fung has pretty good dumplings but their two houses in Taiwan are significantly better and there are some other places in Monterey Park and San Gabriel that have better dumplings IMO but they are infrequently visited by Caucasians. I would disagree about the price, as they're pretty expensive IMHO, like $5-8 per pan of dumplings.
