I'm no Andrew Zimmern.
You won't find me eating bugs on a stick or some strange unidentifiable goo.
I'm also not bald and a man,
ok maybe that's a bad example,
but what I'm trying to say is that I like to try new foods.
I think it's good to step outside your comfort zone and try new things.
Last weekend my husband I drove to Koreatown in Los Angeles
to look around and find somewhere to have lunch.
We ended up at Myung In Dumplings,
an unassuming little place in a strip mall, easily passed over if you weren't looking.
While what we ate wasn't eyeballs or something crazy...it was completely delicious!
King dumplings with pork and kimchi.
Their dough so light and airy...absolutely magnificent.
Perfectly formed swirled buns, steamed to perfection.
Puts my past attempts at making pretty pork buns to shame.
Then a tray full of savory little shumai - pockets of pure deliciousness!
A cold beer, and I couldn't have been happier.
I love finding a little gem of a restaurant like this.
What about you...
Have you eaten outside the box lately?
