We were recommended Mr. Yang’s Fried Dumplings from 3 friends, so this was our mission yesterday.  It’s located on the 2nd floor of building alongside a nice pedestrian mall that kind of reminded of 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.

We got there and there was a line outside the door.  I had to figure out you pay first, then get in line to wait for your dumplings, and then you hover over people to finish eating so you can fight over spots to sit down at tables.  We didn’t really know how many dumplings to order and they were so cheap that we just ordered 10 each (came out to $5 total).

Perfect Pan Fried Dumplings

Wow, did we order too many!  Well, I guess others usually had 4 plus a bowl of noodle soup, and others had 8 maybe?  So, not too bad, but I was definitely stuffed by number 8.  Mike managed to finish his entire plate and then regretted it later after the food coma hit.

Slurping the broth in the dumplings

These dumplings are magical!  So much juicy broth inside each dumpling and the broth was insanely good.  Best meat-inside-fried-dough I’ve ever had.  Perfect crispiness on the outside.
