Of the four northern Chinese dumpling stalls in Chinatown this is our favorite, offering pork-and-chive pot stickers, boiled beef sandwiches on wedges of homemade sesame bread, vegetable-filled hot and sour soup, and the legendary chive box (ask for "chives and egg pancake");a half-moon pie filled with scallions, vermicelli, scrambled egg, and, sometimes, baby shrimp. The box is prepared on the spot and cooked to order. Also look for the jar of summer kimchi at the carryout window. Best of all: Most selections are around $1, and there are bags of frozen dumplings to take home.
You can get an entire meal at Vanessa's Dumpling House for under $5! I highly recommend the chive and pork fried dumplings (4 for $1) and the sesame pancake sandwich with tuna salad for $2. If you don't like fennel, black licourice, anise tasing stuff, stay away from the basil and chicken dumplings even though they sound really good. You'll thank me.
Four years ago Chinatown's first dumpling stall appeared on Allen Street. At Fried Dumpling, a dollar got you five pork-and-chive pot stickers, four fluffy pork buns, or a bowl of hot-and-sour soupyou could dine splendidly for two bucks. Others... More »
The pork-and-chive pot stickers at DUMPLING HOUSE are fabricated right before your eyes, then simultaneously fried and steamed in a round contraption, making them crispy on the bottom and soft on the top. Five for a dollar, there's no cheaper meal in town. Also don't miss "chives and egg pancake," a vermicelli-laden turnover fried in blazing oil to blistered brownness. More »
