#87. Mandoo at L&M Liquor and Deli

Welcome to the 2011 edition of Stick A Fork In It's 100 Favorite Dishes. We've just kicked off our countdown to #1 (which will appear the same week as our compendium on all that's good and right about Orange County).

When Anna's Mondu closed in Garden Grove earlier this year, I was heartbroken. I still haven't managed to eat in the restaurant that replaced it, but I have started looking for my Korean dumpling fix. I like Myung In, but on a recent abortive trip to Habuya, I stopped in at L&M Liquor and Deli, a prototypical corner liquor store with the deli part replaced with... homemade dumplings. Really, really well-made homemade dumplings. I fell in love... you will too.
