NOW Called VANESSA DUMPLING'S
118 Eldridge Street, Lower East Side NEW YORK
PICTURES ABOVE: F. RESTAURANT, COOL SIGN in F. Restaurant an DUMPLING HOUSE on Rivington, both down on The LOWER EAST SIDE
Dumpling House 118 Eldridge Street is without a doubt, the Greatest Restaurant Food deals in all of NEW YORK. Five "DELICIOUS PORK DUMPLINGS" for a BUCK. That's right $1.00. You just can't beat that. Not even anywhere in South East Asia where you can Thee Most AMAZING STREET FOOD in the WORLD. You get amazing Food on the Streets of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Saigon , and Hanoi for just .75 Cents or a dollar. The thing is, most people in NEW YORK probably make close to 10 times the amount of Money that most people in South East Asia do. so when you can get a amazing dish for the same amount of Money as In South Asia and you're in NEW YORK making considerably more, 5 "PERFECT PORK DUMPLINGS" in NEW YORK may very well be the "Greatest" food deal in the entire WORLD. 2 HOTDOGS and 1 of their famous Fruit Drinks at Gray's Papaya is pretty good as well, but I think the Dumpling House may have beat them ... UPDATE on Dumpling House (Now VANESSA DUMPLING)
Formerly Dumpling House
118 Eldridge Street
NEW YORK, NY
4 for $1.50
When I first wrote about the Dumpling House the Pork Dumplings were
5 dumplings for $1.00. You now get 4 dumpling for $1.50 or 8 for $2.50, which is still probably the greatest food-deal in town any way you look at it.
I came across the original article I wrote about the Dumpling House 10 years ago back in 2006 .
Back then and up until about 2010 I used to go over to LES for Dumplings at least once a week or more. Wow, now I only do so, maybe once every two months. What happened? Can't answer, (maybe it's the long walk there and back) all I can say is, I'm going to start up again, probably tomorrow or Sunday for sure.
SESAME PANCAKE with BEEF
Was just $1.50 back in 2005, now $2.75
or you can get one with PEKING DUCK for $3.25
An order of 8 Steamed Dumplings just $2.50
"Now that's a DEAL" !!!
