Since there seems to be a lot of interest on this board about the legacy of Liang's Kitchen I thought I'd update the Irvine location. It's been taken over by a Sichuanese noodle and dumpling operation, Wei Shian Noodles. Or to paraphrase ipsedixit, just what Irvine needs, another noodle and dumpling place. The features seem to be their meat filled pie/cakes and beef noodle soup. But not surprisingly I want to highlight the chicken dumplings, which are pretty good. Not as good as the one' I used to get from George's House in Inglewood before they closed, or Golden Wok in San Antonio (really!), but one of the better versions around currently. Wei Shian Noodles is at 5408 Walnut Ave., #I.
