Myung In Dumplings
3109 W Olympic Blvd
Ste B
Los Angeles, CA 90006
(213) 381-3568

Another favorite Koreatown dupling-house is Myung In Dumplings, which can partly attribute some of its success by the TV feature Anthony Bourdain did on it. But, the dumplings here were great before Bourdain made it famous across the globe. Find plenty of steamed dumplings which pack a powerful punch with their ingredients inside. They’re pretty big, too. From spicy shrimp dumplings to pork, veggie and others, you’ll dine like a king here. Their king dumplings (huge) with pork and Kimchi are great, too.
