New York, NY 10003
Village Voice's Description
Vanessa's delivers a slightly upscale rendition of a Chinatown dumpling stall, plus sushi. The pork-scallion potstickers, for example, are exactly twice the price you'd pay on Allen or Eldridge, and every bit as good, while the chicken-mushroom dumplings were even better. Delivered eight to a plate with a salad, they make a good light meal. But the standard aromatic-beef sandwich had been altered, using a bun-size sesame bread, with no fragrance to the beef whatsoever. Best bet: the cheap, tasty half pint of hot and sour soup, rife with bean curd, mushrooms, and lily buds. It's really spicy, too.
Tips from foursquare
The sesame pancake with beef is one of our 101 Best Sandwiches in NY. It's a bánh mì by way of Beijing: thin slices of beef with pickled cukes, carrots, and cilantro, dosed with Sriracha.
sesame pancake sandwiches are fantastic. can't fail with the dumplings either.
Boiled dumplings look like a man's ball sack lulz
Delicious and cheap. What more could you ask for?
