Qing Dao Bread Food is a family-run spot in Monterey Park where the name of the game is Chinese dumplings. The tiny strip mall space isn’t great for big groups, so just do what we do - head to Qing Dao on those hazy Sunday mornings when everything hurts, pick up a few dozen pan-fried dumplings (and their equally excellent boiled dumplings), then head back to bed ASAP.
