mandarin deli, little tokyo

our third or fourth time ordering lunch from this place; it is the bomb!

scallion pancakes: lots of scallions, best i've had.
steamed and pan-fried meat dumplings: both very good.
cold shredded tofu salad: even a tofu hater would have to love this salad! the tofu is pressed and extruded so that it looks and tastes like egg noodles, then tossed with shreds of carrot in a vinegary, garlicky sauce, yum!
cold pickled cucumber: yum, yum, yum!
beef and vegetable soup with handmade noodles: a very beefy broth, with greens and big chunks of meat, and delicious, chewy, handmade wheat noodles.

everything so good, do they serve anything bad at this place?
