Dumpling Dive

Delicious inexpensive crispy fried Pork Dumpling. Don't think there is Veggie. It's a total dive on a Chinatown side street with fast gruff service with limited additional menu. Great for quick snack for Tourists or if on Jury Duty.

Fun experience. The woman at the counter spoke all in Chinese but we made it work! It was unique all right.

This tiny eatery on a one block street in Chinatown is famous for its fried dumplings'; hence the name. It is a one woman operation and she is far from a happy camper. To the contrary, she is somewhat foul tempered, but the dumplings are heavenly. You can order pork or veggie dumplings and she actually smacked one of our... More

I had an order of 5 dumplings, and picked up a soda can from a nearby Asian market on the way there. Total meal cost? $1.80. You can't beat that price in New York! It's a hole-in-the-wall place with very few seats, but if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg on food, that doesn't matter. The... More

Very simple premise: fried potstickers (dumplings) and nothing else. They also offer the fried pork buns (but it's just the gynormous versions). The pork is mixed with some cabbage and leeks. It's so good you don't need sauce because it's still moist when it's fresh off the griddle. OBTW, they offer frozen dumplings for sale too. For $1 you can... More

Fried Dumpling is a little hole in the wall off Mott Street that is following the trend of cheap eats in the city. You get five really good fried dumplings for $1.00 and there are other menu items that run about the same but its the dumplings that everyone comes for at Fried Dumpling. Buy an order as you walk...

On our walking tour, our guide, Garrett, mentioned that some of the best fried dumplings he has ever had are just around the corner from Columbus Park. We went searching for the restaurant after the tour--and found Fried Dumpling! (I love restaurants that don't try to confuse customers with a strange name.). This is more of a stop in, order,...

Good, authentic shop house dumplings. Hot, fresh and fast, which is just as advertised. Do not, however , plan to find a table and sip green tea, as there is only a basic counter to stand at. Old hands will remember to eat over your plate as these dumplings were hot and juicy too! Feat tastes with or without the... More

$1 for 5 fried pork dumplings! Just walk in, place your order, and walk out after dropping your dollar with a quick treat. $2 for vegetarian dumplings.

I go here all the time when I am in town. Just a snack to keep you going. They also sell frozen dumplings which I bring home. The kids love them.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
