I didn't tell you, but, Dumpling Master at 423 N. Atlantic Blvd in Monterrey Park has the best pan-fried veggie dumplings I've ever eaten.
sigh....

    My favorite thing there is their handmade noodle dishes. The beef and tomato chow mein with handmade noodles is wonderful.

        Went the other day and had pork pan fried dumplings and they were just ok...seemed to be a little lean on the meat and more veggie filling. The hand made noodle pork chow mein was excellent. Hand made noodles are the way to go there...rustic looking but good. Not a fan of their onion pancakes because they're pretty thin.

          Agreed. We usually get the 3-ingredient (chicken, shrimp, pork) handmade noodle soup, which is great. Usually round it off w/ a plate of steamed, fried dumplings and green onion pancakes. I'm no dumpling expert, but works for me.

            I've always liked their steamed fish dumplings and handcut nio roh mien (beef soup noodles).

            I love my scallion pancakes (chung yeoh bing) on the thin side, so Dumpling Master's is perfect.

            Stop telling people about this place! After going there for several years, I don't wanna start having to wait for a table!

              No need to worry about the crowds...I think its either you like it or don't among CH dumpling afficionados.

              I learned of this place on chowhound and took my family. Dumplings were very good (not as good as other's) but what reallly WOWED me was thier soft noodles!! Excellent. I still have dreams about them!!

                Are handmade noodles the only kind of noodles they have?

                  No, you can have the regular noodles or rice noodles, but hand-made noodles are 75 cents extra and the way to go.
