Kingburg Kitchen (San Gabriel): A Pictorial Essay


#1

Solid, flavorful cooking, hand-pulled noodles, excellent fish jiaozi (dumplings), and a damn good shenjianbao (pan-fried bao)… Ladies & gentlemen, I give you - Kingburg Kitchen.










#2

That makes me so happy and hungry.


#3

fish dumplings.

i’m so fucking down.


#4

I went once to fucking Kingburg if it’s the joint right across from the mini-mall that housed Tan Cang (or Newport Seafood before it moved to the old Marie Calendar’s chalet style room in the SGV a few years back) ???

king burger left me a little nonplussed.

maybe i’ll give it another whirl.

what says the rest of the fucking crew ???

thanks.


#5

they appear to be fried on both sides, which makes me want to put them in the mini xian bing category vs SJB which are fried then steamed pot-sticker style.

they look good though.


#6

this says nothing to me. what did you order? they “had” good taiwanese beef noodle soup + varietal dumpling for ~ < $8.

Alternatively where are you gonna eat? Luscious? F that.


#7

Nanjing salted duck is legit and just across the street; also Hui Tou Xiang, if you feel like devouring ShenJianBurritos. Carbalicious, and nary a trace of hipster mahlah in any of that goodness.


#8

What is a ShenJian burrito???
