Battle of the Potstickers

I am looking for a Chowhound dust-up on the best potstickers in LA area.

My current favorite is Luscious Dumplings, where the potstickers are a delicate, juicy thing of beauty.

Anyone have anything better?

  1. I agree with you on Luscious. Some may howl but I still enjoy the large and meaty potstickers from yang chow in chinatown.

    1. A vote for Mei Long Village. I'm not crazy about their XLB - good flavor but seldom enough soup and they fall apart too easily - but their fried potstickers are excellent.

          Dumpling House in Temple City had great potstickers!! Too bad they closed.

        2. Luscious Dumplings is good, and was my top choice for a long time.

          But nowadays, I think the best pan-fried dumplings (gwou-tei or 鍋貼) are at Beijing Pie House aka Canton Gourmet and Bakery.

            Rumor has it they closed. True or not?

              Beijing Pie House? Really? I was there about week and a half (12 days or so) ago.

              1. re: ipsedixit

                Just went to Beijing Pie House and found the experience tremendous. Got the Meat Pancake, the Lamb Pies, and the Pumpkin Pork and Shrimp fried dumplings. The dumplings were thicker, rougher things than the refined delicacies at Luscious Dumplings. I really enjoyed them. The meat pancake was a fantastic kaleidoscope of sensations -- sweet, savory, lovely. the lamb pies were wonderful. Fantastic.

                    Hi, echoparkdirt!
                    I am glad to read your "fantastic" report about Beijing Pie House.
                    I have had their lamb pies several times and you'd think I would be over it -- but not yet!

            2. I would have to say Dean Sin World has the best potstickers I have tried. I personally still think the XLB at Mama Lu is better than DSW but other thinks otherwise. Potstickers here are very juicy inside and crispy outside.

                They are related -- Dean Sin World (mom), Mama's Lu (daughter).

                1. re: ipsedixit

                  I thought Lu Dumpling House and Mama Lu is the same, they have the same Chinese name. Dean Sin World is operated by a few ladies, small little hole in the wall that does their own thing by hand. Are you sure?

              2. I really liked the potstickers at Mandarin Noodle Deli in Temple City. I haven't eaten at the location they moved to from Las Tunas location but hopefully it's as good as I remember!
