IRec: Dumpling House, Good Food, Museum of Jurassic Technology

Dumpling House Restaurant

5612 Rosemead Blvd, Temple City, CA 91780 Tel: 626.309.9918 Closed on Tuesdays

Bills itself as authentic Cortern Chinese cooking. I particularly like the steamed veggied dumplings, onion pancake, and glass noodle salad.

By tuning in to Good Food, you can discover great restaurants that you’ve never heard of, the politics of consumption, explorations of cultures through their food customs and some of the most interesting people who devote their lives to various elements of the food supply.


Off beat music series in a museum

From the L.A. Weekly

The Museum of Jurassic Technology is an institution at the intersection of the real and the fake. The exhibits bend perception by presenting horned humans, teleporting bats, and scale models of Noah’s Ark. But on the second floor, in a room adjacent to a tribute to dogs of the Soviet space program, is the Tula Tea room, where Georgian ex-pat Nanuka Tchitchou, serves black tea from her home country. But on certain nights, the tea room (named after Tchitchou’s windhound, Tula) becomes a performance space, highlighting music from across Los Angeles and the world. The performances are few, but always worth the trip to Culver City for the Petrojvic Blasting Comany, who unfurl a banner of Romanian dance music or Sevilay Çınar’s deft plucking of the Anatolian bağlama, “the sounds of which have accompanied warriors into battle, stirred the spirits of remote peasant villages, and occupied a central role in many communal and religious ceremonies.” Whether the exhibits challenge your perception, or the performances take you to a far away place, the Museum of Jurassic Technology is a unique diamond in Los Angeles’ ever-expanding urban rough.
