Korean-Chinese fusion is comfort food for folks on both sides of that border. In SGV, Dumpling House is popular among Chinese for jajang myun (noodles with black bean sauce) and jjam pong (noodles in spicy seafood broth), both with handmade noodles. Scallion pancakes and vegetable dumplings are good too.
In K-town, Little Dragon has the best, says koreankorean. Their tang soo yook, sweet and sour pork, has extra sticky rice in the batter for frying and it’s addictive.
olivexjina insists that Young King is the best, having been around forever with no decline in quality. House special beef is also good.
