The bready dumplings at this Korean food stall outside of Joong Boo supermarket in Avondale might be more closely related to buns—but Wang Mandoo literally translates to “King Dumpling”, and we’re not going to argue with royalty. There are only three types: two savory filled with pork or pork with kimchi, and a sweet red bean option with a black rice wrapper. These things are huge, with one alone working for a light meal, but if you've come with an appetite, feel free to try and tackle all three.
