Dump Day! – East Dumpling King
Oh how I look forward to Wednesday’s, our beloved Dump(-pling) Day …. and now that I’m on a serious health kick this little cheat gets me through those lean days…..
Anyway, as I’ve said before, shopping in Asian markets and dumplings are two of my favorite things in the whole world. So imagine my glee when I stumbled upon Square Market (formerly 99 Ranch) in Rosemead; a two for one-derland. You see, Square Market has an attached food court and this ain’t your typical pizzahut/taco hell kind of joint. This food court is populated with an assortment of Asian “mom and pop” stands. A veritable cornucopia of culinary wonders, although I admit there’s really no ambiance to speak of- this is a down an dirty experience.
Last time I went to the market I was lucky enough to grab a quick snack at East Dumpling King which kept calling me back so, I knew I had bring Sis. East Dumpling King is run by one lady who does it all, takes your order and cooks it from scratch. They also sell frozen bags of dumplings. YUM!
The unassuming yet delicious East Dumpling King
Beef Roll- This is by far our favorite Beef Roll of all that we’ve tried, crunchy, chewy, succulent…we still dream about it.
Pan Fried Pork Dumplings- Another winner right up there with Luscious Dumplings.
Juicy Pork XLB’s- nice respectable but compared to the rest of the meal just aiight.
