Hui Tou Xiang - Hollywood review image

Hui Tou Xiang Hollywood

We love Hui Tou Xiang for their plump, juicy dumplings—and now, the fantastic San Gabriel noodle house has a second, flashier outpost in Hollywood. Unlike their flagship, which is quite barebones, this space is sleek, glamorous, and feels like an old-school speakeasy. Black brick ceilings arch overhead, tables are lit by red neon signs, and there are shiny surfaces everywhere you look. Did we get too into it, and accidentally call someone “doll,” for no apparent reason? Maybe. Of course, the name of the game here (literally) is the hui tou dumpling, a rectangular pan-fried block stuffed with sweet pork meat. But the soup dumplings shouldn’t be missed either, plump little satchels full of a rich, decadent broth we’d happily drink on its own.
