Sometimes I wonder how these restaurants name themselves. For example a recently opened boba cafe in Alhambra calls itself 85°C Tea House, kind of silly but probably trying to be hip. With the newly opened Kingburg Kitchen, 715 W. Las Tunas Dr., I have no clue where the name came from. I thought maybe the owners used to live in the San Joaquin Valley, but that's Kingsburg, not Kingburg. Name aside, the big news is that this place has the best fish dumplings I've ever had--better than Dumpling 10053 or Dumpling House or anywhere. Kingsburg Kitchen's specialty seems to be dumplings, with eight different varieties, including the relatively uncommon beef dumplings, among their very modest menu of a couple of dozen items. They also seem to be quite proud of their spicy beef noodle soup. I do wonder whether they'll be able to make a go of it, however. Besides the limited menu, they are located in the least busy of the shopping centers at the intersection of Las Tunas and Mission (the one with El Pollo Loco), across the street from the shopping centers housing Luscious Dumplings on one one corner and Golden Deli and Wan Chung on the other. Hope they'll be around for a while.
