So Delicious and Cheap. This little hole in the wall on the south-west corner of Chinatown it a diamond in the rough. The menu is simple - fried pork dumplings, fried pork buns. At 5 for a dollar, you can fill up for $2-$3. It's not healthy, but add some of the vinegar sauce and hot sauce, you won't care as you inhale these little treats. They also serve a delicious hot soy milk and a hot and sour soup - nothing over $2. There is counter space for 5 people to eat but you can go to Columbus Park 50 feet away to eat when it's sunny. I will definitely come back. It's close to the city hall/courts in addition to Chinatown and Little Italy.
it's no vanessa's. a little overrated from what i can tell, this is no vanessa's dumpling house. but the dumplings are made right in front of you and the prices are cheap!
Cheapest in Chinatown. The ultimate in cheap eats, Fried Dumpling is easily one of the best places to get a enjoy a satisfying meal of dumplings for less than $5. For the old adage, "1 dollar goes a long way" it bolds very true for this little place. Beware of the non-English speaking woman who makes the dumplings.
Great dumplings. Since I live in the neighborhood, I go here a lot. The price is cheap - 5 dumplings for $1. You get a good "show". It's entertaining to watch them make them. They're also good tasting! There's no room to really sit and enjoy there, but there's a park half a block away, so take them there and bask in the sun.
cheap eats!. For a dollar, i couldn't be more satisfied. You get 5 fresh, steamy fried pork dumplings for a buck! They were really delicious, just like my grandma used to make them, filled with pork and chives with the juice that tends to run down your chin and onto your shirt. You can eat at the counter, but theres not much room at all, so just walk half a block down to Columbus park to eat. And good luck trying to ask them questions- they only speak Manderin and a bit of Cantonese.
Yum.. Best dumplings in New York. Even during the blackout, they were cooking them on a bunsen burner! Don't bother trying to ask for vegetarian though, unless you speak Mandarin.
A ridiculously cheap taste of Shanghai thrives in Chinatown..
There are exactly three small tables at this tiny hole in the wall, but for food lovers on a budget, it's heaven. Five juicy, tender dumplings ring in at $1, so two people can eat themselves silly for under $10. The two condiment bottles on the table provide all that you need: a tangy blend of vinegar and soy sauce in one, and spicy chili sauce in the other.
The fried or boiled dumplings come in either pork or veggie and are handmade with a fragrant dose of chives. But don't overlook the other tasty Shanghainese treats: da bing (plump, sesame-encrusted "pancakes" that are steamed first and then fried); fried round pork buns; tea eggs; perfectly savory hot and sour soup; congee (a thickened rice and red bean soup--ask for sugar); and, to perfectly complement your meal, all the fresh, hot, high-protein soy milk that you can drink (try it sweetened).
Best place to eat in new york. The dumplings here are great. It is always hard to find a seat and the selection is not that great but it is one of the few places to get lunch for only a buck. The food is great also which you would never expect for only a dollar, Yes you read that right only a buck. You get five delicious dumplings for only a buck. You can also get two pork buns for a buck also which are just as good. They also offer soup which depends on the day but as the name suggests just stick to the dumplings, which are made on the premises and are not synthesized by some big evil corporation.
