I’d like to start off the Chinatown Eats blog by what else than to write about dumplings?
This place defines the classic hole in the wall experience. While its meant as a take out store, there are a few chairs for customers to dine on. I had $2 worth of dumplings and let me tell you, these 10 dumplings filled me up well.
The price of $1 for 5 dumplings is quite common in the Chinatown area. There are a lot of dumpling houses in this city, some good some bad. Almost any Chinese person can make dumplings, even my parents do. Just because you can make flour, chop chives and mince pork doesn’t mean you can make a great dumpling. Prosperity Dumpling tastes really good and the pork is not too salty nor fat but very tender. The typical Vietnamese hot sauce was available on the counter and it was not watered down, so it got quite spicy. For my next trip there I will try the sesame pancake and some soup items because its too hot in NYC right now.
Positives: Price, taste
Negatives: Location (not the heart of C.Town), cleanliness, selection
