Ultimate Noodles “Mandarin Deli”

We have decided to try to find the best noodles in So Cal (My obsession for noodles started when I was making about 2 trips to Tokyo each month). To date there is only one noodle shop that warrants top billing and that is the “Mandarin Deli” located on Broadway in China Town. Jimmy is one amazing chef and turns out the best fresh steamed dumplings, potstickers, seaweed salad, dry ground pork with handmade noodles (our favorite), 5-spice Beef noodle soup, black bean dry noodles with pork, scallion pancakes and more. It is fun to watch them make the noodles and dumplings with wonton wraps through the front window. Prices are totally reasonable. Limited seating. Park below underground, validated. No credit cards. Not fancy just great food. Many top chefs in LA and the country have come in and tried to steal and imitate Jimmy’s “Dry Ground Pork Noodles”. He will not part with the family secret. 727 N. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA, USA. 213-623-6054. Perfect before theater or concert place to eat! Long time our favorite!

So this week we checked out “Otafuku” for the perfect soba in Gardena.
