Stunning Northern Chinese in Gardena, including XLB!

Stopped into the Tozai Plaza complex at Redondo Beach Boulevard and Western intending to visit Mountain for eclectic Korean and noticed a new place called Dumpling House. It has been open for only a week or two, and as soon as I saw the menu all other plans vanished. We tried XLB, smoked pork pancake with scallion, and lamb with cumin -all were Monterey Park quality. The lamb with cumin was best, spicy, oniony, and delicious.

Service was friendly but amateur, and strangely they served the tea in styrofoam cups. We brought wine and drank it from soup bowls - next time we will bring our own glassware. Bill was $29.00 for more than two people could eat. We will be going back, again and again if it is always this good.
