Kwong Shop is a new potsticker pop-up that’s operating out of an apartment in Mid-Wilshire. Not only is there a real life corgi welcoming you at the pick-up location (can this become the industry standard, please?), but the cook-at-home potstickers themselves were excellent. We love the peppery savoriness of the Impossible potsticker, but the mushroom was the star of the show. Stuffed with two types of mushroom, cabbage, garlic, sesame oil, and vinegar, it tastes earthy and umami-heavy, but the bitterness of the vinegar cuts through those flavors perfectly. Also, be sure to order a bottle of the Kwong sauce - it’s a sweet, aromatic soy sauce that’s an old family recipe of the chefs. You'll be putting it on everything you eat for the rest of the week.
