Mason’s is a new dumpling spot in Highland Park with lines out the door - come any day for lunch, and expect to wait a half hour on the sidewalk. Everybody’s lining up because this order-at-the-counter strip mall spot is serving some of the best dumplings you’ll find outside of the San Gabriel Valley. Not to mention an excellent hanger steak bao sandwich and a spicy seaweed salad we’re still thinking about. Service is quick once you’re inside, prices are affordable, and there’s a serious to-go operation as well.
