It’s not news that a lot of the food inside Westwood Village exists mainly to service drunk college kids, but one major exception to that rule is Northern Cafe. The order-at-the-counter Chinese restaurant has a massive menu full of everything from dan dan noodles to cumin lamb to beef rolls, and while everything is good, you’re in line for the dumplings. Whether they’re stuffed with juicy pork and crab or shrimp, egg, and chive, these are some of the better tasting dumplings you’ll find on the Westside.
