Soup comparable to the late Mandarin Deli?
When the Mandarin Deli closed in Little Tokyo, we went to the Mandarin Deli in Chinatown. Since that location closed, we are in withdrawal We loved their soups and pan fried meat dumplings.
Do you know of another place IN L. A. that is comparable? Is it possible?
Thanks for your recommendations.
Mandarin Noodle (?) on Garvey just east of Atlantic. If I got the name wrong you still can't miss the bright orange tile. It is on the north side of the street. Awesome pan fried pot stickers, scallion pancakes & great soups with hand cut noodles. Oh, they have that pig ear appetizer too-but not for me.
There is also a Mandarin Deli in Northridge which I had to the opportunity to go to this past week. It was no bueno. I don't know if the chain has gone downhill or newer places are just so much better but I do remember the food being better there back in the day.
That being said, I've enjoyed the soup noodles and fried dumplings at Luscious Dumpling. For pix of food see below:
