Rude, crabby - loved it

Part of a touring group we had a pre-battle briefing outside the premises before we went in. We were warned - have your one dollar bill in your hand ready or be prepared. Suitably hyped I entered the vaguely clean premises with a dollar in my hand. This was promptly snatched away and replaced with... read more

This place was just as expected. The dumplings were great and the lady was really crabby, which I had read about. It was actually amusing. $1US for 5 fried dumplings.

Cheap eats and well worth $1 for 5 dumplings. I thought from my one experience that the dumplings, while good, were not great. I'm searching for the best. Miss Prosperity so much.

For New York's best dumpling value seek out a hole in the wall at 106 Mosco Street off Mott Street in Chinatown. You get 5 fried morsels of gold for one dollar. The pork potstickers are delicious and the value is insane.

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

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.

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

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
