I got hooked on xiaolongbao while living in Los Angeles area, with access to <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Din_Tai_... Tai Fung</a>. I've heard that they can be found (with questionable reviews) at <a href="http://onokinegrindz.typepad.com/ono_... Bistro</a>. Anywhere else?
Also, any place that has the rice cake noodles like Din Tai Fung? I tried the ones at Little Village and was very disappointed, the ones I'm used to are much more moist, chewy, but not tough; <a href="http://biggestmenu.com/rdr/CA/Arcadia... a picture of the ones I'm missing.</a>
