#59. Wang Mandoo at Myung In

We're nearly halfway through our list of 100 great dishes to eat in Orange County and its environs. See the previous choices at the end of the post.

The best part of any Korean supermarket is the obligatory food court, and the H-Mart on Magnolia and Garden Grove is no different; to the left of the entrance are a half-dozen stalls, short on ambiance but long on interesting Korean foods. While you can get hobakjuk (pumpkin porridge) or jajangmyeon (spicy noodles), I always seem to end up with "king dumplings" from Myung In. These are huge, Chinese bao-style fluffy buns filled with a meatball filling that's got a lot of chopped dark green leafy greens in it. Four come to an order, plus a couple of bowls of panchan, and you'll stagger away afterwards, sated and happy. Make sure to ask for more of the spicy dipping sauce.

Myung In, inside the H-Mart grocery store, 8911 Magnolia Blvd. #3, Garden Grove; (714) 638-4099; no website.
