Impromptu Chinese Dumpling Chow Meet-Up Today, Tues 12/24

BarryC and I emailed on a recent thread and decided to meet up today for an early lunch. Flavor Garden.

"i don't think i've had pan-fired dumplings there, but i stand behind my recommendation: flavor garden. their scallion pancakes are pretty good.

it's in the mall between wendy's & the 168 supermarket on the north side of valley west of new ave." -- barryc

So there it is -- Tues. 12/24, meet at 11:30, sit down at 12 noon.

If it is just us two, great. kevin, you said you were interested. Any other 'hounds are welcome. I've never been there, so I can't vouch for the place. I'm occupied until 9 tomorrow -- you can find my email on my profile. I can return emails or calls then.

    1. Wonder how traffic will be at 11:30 AM on Christmas Eve. I'm working, but might I dare take a long lunch and drive all the way out from the Westside?

        wish I could make that trip today...but, sadly, not gonna happen

          I'm driving from the westside. Just get a traffic report before you go. I'm guesstimating just over a half-hour but giving myself double.

            on fridays it takes about 45 minutes from the 3rd street promenade.

          2. BTW, as if you couldn't guess: bring cash!

            1. got two more of my regular friday lunch crowd to join us. this ought to be fun. see you all in an hour or so.

                  not that i know of. i actually know them from dance circles, but they've joined me at various times when i get a group to go check out a new place on fridays at lunch time, usually in the SGV, but we've also hit koreatown and a few places in the south bay.

              1. I think I can make it. Might not get there till closer to noon, but will be there.
