Last night a friend took me to a neighbor hood favorite of his...Dumpling Master on Atlantic Blvd. in Monterey Park.
We had Shrimp Fried Rice with Pineapple...while it had lots of egg, it was a little weak on shrimp count...but tasty overall.
The Veggie Pan Fried Dumplings were the real reason we went...as I am a vegetarian, I rarely get to eat Dumplings at Chinese restaurants. These were amazingly plump with a very flavorful stuffing.
They only take cash...and the nearest ATM (which I found out) is two big blocks away at Ralph's.
