Best Mandoo in K-Town?

Hi All. It's been a while since the last posting on this so thought I'd start a new thread. Looking for the best mandoo in Koreatown. Steamed, fried, wang (king-sized)--any and all dumpling recs recommended.

Thanks so much!

  1. Western Doma Noodles has pretty bomb steamed mandoo. Check it out. Their noodle soups and banchan are pretty amazing as well.

      +1. Try the mandoo kalguksu, wherein you get dumplings *and* hand-cut noodles. Also, one of the banchan is a more-than-decent plate of ddukbokki!

    2. Thanks for the rec guys. I don't know if I ordered the wrong thing but I went to WDN one time before and wasn't blown away...

      I ended up going to Myungdong Kyoja at Wilshire and Harvard. It was very good. Nice filling of pork and chives. The banchan were just two kimchis - red and white cabbage. It was delicious going down, but had to deal with the effects of all the MSG for the rest of the day, so probably won't be going back.

          I really liked Mandu Chon, especially their kimchee mandoo.. Anyone know where they've gone now that California Market is closed?
