Included In

Ma Gong La Po used to have its own storefront above ground, but has since moved into a food stall at the Richland Center food court in Chinatown. But despite downsizing, the menu is still fairly long and full of tasty dishes. The dumplings (like xiao long bao or pickled cabbage pork) are pretty good, but definitely get the lamb skewers. Each order comes with four and the meat has plenty of smoky cumin.
