We Need Your Mouth!

Pin It So last night we made several attempts to have dumplings, before finally having dumplings. It was a lot of effort and driving. We met a friend out in Temple City to have dinner at The Dumpling House. Well, it happens that they are closed on Tuesdays. So there goes that.

We then decided to drive to Luscious Dumplings (this place is tiny, no website) in San Gabriel. Cash only. So I had to stop at the bank. We've been there before, very good. Very small, limited menu, lots of waiting. They were sold out of half of their menu, so, we walked across the street to Kingburg Kitchen.

There was hardly anyone in the place, so we hesitantly sat down and looked at the menu.


We ordered some dumplings, pork buns and noodles. The food was decent and cheap. I still prefer other dumpling places to this one though. What struck me about the place was the weird homemade flyers taped to the walls. Well, mostly just one that had huge lips all over it and said in red big letters "Your Mouth is How We Stay in Business." It just looked strange and I get what they are trying to say, but I know there's a better way to say it than with weird clip art lips and unattractive font. They need a new marketing strategy for sure.
