Dumpling House in Temple City is closing

raytamsgv Mar 7, 2011 10:20 AM

The owners have decided to retire. If you like their food, you still have one week before they shut their doors.

        Dumpling House has not been the same since the patriarch of the family stopped cooking.

          And, yes, they have sold their business - just call Sincere Escrow in San Gabriel.

            Wen there today not realizing it was closed! Miss those onion pancakes and the cucumber! Been to Din Tai Fung, but didn't like it as well. What is a good alternative to Dumpling House? They were one of my favorites?!?!??!?!

              101 Noodle House (across the street from Din Tai Fung), or maybe House of Mandarin Noodle on Temple City Blvd and Lower Azusa.

                  101 Noodle makes a fine scallion pancake. Never had the Mandarin Noodle ones, but from the adjacent tables, they seem to be popular. Hard to mess up scallion pancakes, unless you are Michelle's Pancakes.

                  Ipsedixit actually meant "101 Noodle Express". I had the ones from the House of Mandarin Noodle in their old location. It was about the same as 101 Noodle Express, but I prefer 101 Noodle Express because of the other dishes they have.

                  My favorite scallion pancakes were from Dumpling House as well! Now that they're gone, Earthen in Hacienda Heights has the top spot for me scallion pancake wise.
