Myungin Dumplings is a long-standing Koreatown staple and the fact they’re now operating out of a tiny space in the Northridge Fashion Center should be extremely exciting for everyone in the area. Plain and simple, you won’t find many Korean dumplings in town better than the ones served at Myungin. The softball-sized King Steamed Dumplings come filled with pork and kimchi, and though there are only four to an order, that’s more than enough for a quick solo lunch. If you’re with a group though, be sure to throw in some wang mandu (spicy pan-fried dumplings) and beef dumpling soup.
