Mandoorang Dumpling House, located at the upper reaches of Beach Boulevard, just before it swings into La Mirada, is a Korean diner, a cozy place that attracts everyone from proper grandmothers to bilingual college students, rambunctious businessmen and toddlers. All eaters filling the snug booths order some manifestation of mandoo, the legendary Korean dumpling that can come the size of an extended thumb or a clenched fist. An order of mandoos can fill a stomach, but they're listed at the beginning for a reason: everyone considers them appetizers for Mandoorang's encyclopedic menu, which spans from soups to rice dishes, classics (soondae, Korean blood sausage, soft and downright sanguinary) to strange creations (order the cheese ramen, and out come standard noodles with slices of what taste like Kraft), as well as the latest trends in American Korean cookery (fried chicken, spicy and sticky).
