Looks like Dumpling Inn and Spicy City are favorites of the hoi polloi.

    Independent of what the hoi polloi think, Spicy City is definitely one of our (SD's) best Chinese Restaurants.

    Dumpling Inn is very good, too.

      I wonder if either of them serve any of that Hawaiian Poi Holloi?

        Spicy House was one of my favorites. I got there tonight and it had a Grand Opening sign- new owners, staff, and menu. I was not impressed with the food.
