CHEW YOUNG ROO
Hunting for dumplings, I decided to check out Chew Young Roo in the Koreatown Plaza. They are known for their king dumplings, which comes with pork or shrimp. The “king” dumplings are more like Chinese pork buns, selling at $6 for 4. If you want the Chlorella dumplings, they cost $7.99 for 4.
The staff was kind to let me have 2 regular king dumplings and 2 Chlorella dumplings. I wished I had enough money for the red bean bun; it’s cash only.
Unfortunately the dumplings lack flavor and there was too much dough for the amount of meat stuffed inside. Where is the meat...?
I was hoping that the Chlorella dumplings would tasted better, but it tasted the same; I guess the only difference is the color of the skin.
I prefer You & Me where it’s cheaper and better. I can check Chew Young Roo off the list.
