Myung In serves massive Korean dumplings in a strip-mall storefront. The space is crammed with people eating wang mandu - steamed, softball-sized dumplings stuffed with kimchi and pork. There are four to an order, which is enough to fill you up if you’re grabbing a quick solo lunch. But it’s best to come with a group so you can try the shrimp and vegetable dumpling soup, and some pork and shrimp pan-fried dumplings (wang mandu).
