I've asked what the best meal in New York is for under $10. I'm not sure Fried Dumpling wins that battle. What I am sure, however, is that it is far and away the best meal in New York (and possily anywhere else in America) that you can get for a dollar!
Yes, you read that right. A single dollar ($1). For that price, you will get five delicious pork dumplings. Very traditional, very tasty.
For most folks, that will be plenty for lunch. Of course, if you eat like me, you'll get at least five more. Or more accurately, 10-20 more. At 5 per dollar, your waistband is absolutely your only concern.
Of course, this ain't exactly a romantic venue. You eat sitting only if one of the few stools is available. Nobody speaks English. And the place definitely feels like Chinatown in terms of decor (or the lack thereoff). But it doesn't matter. You're paying $1 for five delicious dumplings!!
