The definition of a "hole-in-the-wall" joint, Dean Sin World in Monterey Park offers some of the best xiao long bao in the San Gabriel Valley. Other choices are Shanghainese-style small dishes and crab shell pastries, which come in both sweet and savory variations and are named for their resemblance to the Shanghainese hairy crab. Added bonus: Dean Sin World claims to use no added MSG or lard, which is a fair excuse to order another helping of doughy sweet XLB.
