Where we've featured it
Northern Cafe is a San Gabriel Valley original, and though it’s grown into a bonafide mini-chain, they have some of the best noodles and dumplings in West Hollywood. Parking at the Beverly and La Cienega location can get a bit treacherous (look for street parking in the neighborhood to the north), but once you’re inside you’ll find a quick, order-at-the-counter setup, and a bright interior where you’ll happily burn your entire lunch hour. Everything is under $10, and we like the beef roll and dan dan noodles.
Northern Cafe is a San Gabriel Valley original, and though it has a few locations across LA now, this order-at-the-counter Beverly Hills spot still has some of the best noodles and dumplings in the area. Finding parking on Beverly/La Cienega is a bit intense, but if you head into the neighborhood north of Beverly Blvd., the parking gods should be on your side. Everything on the menu is under $10, and we recommend the dan dan noodles and the beef roll.
