“Some low quality dumplings”

Luscious Dumplings 潤豐元饺子店 - Monrovia
Ranked #81 of 147 Restaurants in Monrovia
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 October 2017

This place really has nerves to call itself "luscious dumplings."

First of all they overwork the gluten in the dough making it too soft and not chewy. At least they don't make the jiaozi too thick...

They do not squeeze the dumplings like they do in China, meaning you get a flat, more smooth shell that does not cook as well.

The meat and vegetables do not taste fresh.

You can get the same quality for cheaper in Chinese supermarkets here. Even those pale in comparison to what you find in the supermarkets in mainland China or even higher quality restaurants here in LA.

This place serves the best dumplings and noodle soup and all side dishes I have ever had. The broth for the Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup is clearer compared to other restaurant but it is very tasty. All the dumplings are homemade. We love the steamed vegetable dumplings as well as pan fried chive pockets and seaweed salad in chili garlic sauce. Delicious! It's a small restaurant, so it could get crowded during lunch and dinner hour. Try to come before or after the rush.

This is a very small place but it is very clean and affordable. The food is very typical of a Chinese noodle and dumpling restaurant plus the service is fast and efficient that is located in a mall. I never had to wait for a table.

Fast and friendly service, good prices, excellent food. The menu isn't large, but everything is perfectly prepared. Unlike many Chinese places, this is a small space with perhaps a dozen tables. It is a very nice alternative to the larger and more crowded places.

Pretty basic little place, but the food is fresh and hot. If want you want is a quick stop for soup, noodles, and tea, this is the place.
