Ms Chi Cafe
There’s a lot going on at this all-day Chinese-ish spot in Culver City. In the mornings, you can get breakfast wontons and brown rice oatmeal with a soft egg, and for lunch you can expect dumplings, bao, and scallion pancake sandwiches. While they have an order-at-the-counter set-up during the day, expect full table service at night, when the menu offers even more dumplings, plus entrees like beef and broccoli. The dumplings here are good (we like the chicken jiaozi and will be back to see what a cheeseburger dumpling is all about), the noodles are solid, and we were pleasantly surprised by the scallion pancake-wrapped pastrami sandwich.
