J. Gold Reviews Hui Tou Xiang Noodles House

The Goldster is back in The SGV today, paying a visit to Hui Tou Xiang Noodles House. And while the soup dumplings and noodles are both well and good, here it's all about the pork blintzes:

But what you are here for are the titular hui tou, an invented name for ? Chinese blintzes, more or less: dumpling skins burrito-wrapped around thumb-sized lozenges of pork minced with onions, flattened into oblongs, and pan-fried tawny brown. The pork juices become pressurized, and when you breach the crisp skin with your teeth, they jet across the table or right down at your lap.
A word of advice. Goldy suggests visiting this tiny restaurant at off hours, not 8 p.m. on a Saturday night. [LAT]
