Takeaway dim sum spot for soup dumplings, shu mai & more in white-walled digs without tables. IXLB — the XLB, at least, is short for the iconic xiao long bao style of Chinese soup dumpling.
ixlb DimSum Eats (yes, the name's stylized in lowercase) sits on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Bronson Avenue, just steps from Hoy Ka Thai and Emerson College. It's pretty much a to-go-only joint, with a couple of counters built into the walls and standing room to eat. The design is sleek and minimalistic. A row of iPads are lined up along a wall and will soon be available to be used for ordering. The large menu that hangs above the cash registers is simple, with around 25 items, written in both Chinese and English.
