Din Tai Fung isn’t the only dumpling house in Glendale you need to be aware of. Tumanyan is home to the khinkali, a traditional Georgian soup dumpling that comes either boiled or fried (go the boiled route) and stuffed with Georgian cheese, ground beef, or spinach and mushrooms. The place itself is a little more high-end, yet with prices that are still reasonable for a big group dinners. Also the quiet patio tucked behind a big building is ideal for a low-key date night before catching a movie at Americana across the street.
