You know what they don’t tell you about selling your clothes on the internet? It’s a lot of f*cking work. Sifting through your closet, engaging with people online, determining which low-rise jeans do or do not spark joy (spoiler alert: it’s always the latter), and for what? A couple extra bucks a month? No. Just order from CHD instead. Baskets of mandu, or Korean dumplings, come either grilled or steamed, and start at just $10. Or if you’re feeling like a certain Queen song and just Want It All, get the combination plate. For $14, you’ll get ten pieces filled with pork, kimchi, galbi, shrimp, and chili - which, no offense, is a much better deal than anything you could find on Depop. CHD is available for takeout and delivery - call (213) 334-4333, or find them on most major apps.
Chang Hwa Dang, or CHD for short, is a new restaurant from Seoul that specializes in dumplings. Located in a strip mall off of Wilshire Blvd., you’ll find the entire spectrum of mandu here, from grilled to steamed, with fillings like ground pork, kimchi, galbi, and shrimp. But if you, like Fabolous (featuring Jeremih and Davido), can’t choose just one, get the mixed plate - or one of their other Korean dishes, like tteok-boki or kimchi fried rice.
Although freezers across the city are packed with the frozen wares of Mama Lu’s, Lao Tao, and Little Fatty, if you’re the type of person who suspects pan-frying dumplings might be just a little out of your skill-level, then head to CHD. This Koreatown restaurant specializes in made-to-order mandu, and serves everything on the dumpling spectrum, from grilled to steamed, and with fillings like ground pork, kimchi, galbi, and shrimp, all available for takeout and delivery - call (213) 334-4333 or find them on most major apps.
