Sam Woo's BBQ in Van Nuys (soup photo)

Outside of SGV, this place gets our respect. Whenever we've gone, about 90% of the patrons have always been Chinese. And what is off-putting to many non-Chinese/Panda Express eaters are the BBQ offerings that face the front door. The ducks scare off the less-initiated but are a total invite for those who can appreciate it.
Based on that enticing photo and Hypnotic23's praise, I gave it a shot, even though Chinese food is among my least favorite ethnic foods.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a lot of food in that bowl for which I was charged $6.75 before tax. Another point - even though they were called "meat" dumplings, they contained shrimp. Those with shellfish allergies should avoid that dish.
