NOW Called VANESSA DUMPLING’S
118 Eldridge Street, Lower East Side NEW YORK
F RESTAURANT Clinton Street LES New York, this joint is one of my FAVES!!!! Nobody knows about it! Guaranteed if ask 1,000 New Yorkers if they’ve ever heard about this place, let alone if they’d ever been there, you be hard pressed to find a one. I’m gonna let the “Cat Out of the Bag.” People should start paying me for this.
Yes native-newyork-pics.blogspot.com F. Restaurant on Clinton Street down on the Lower East Side (LES) of New York is without a doubt one of the Coolest restaurants you could ever dream of going to. Paris Hilton has never been there.
F. Restaurant is a restaurant that serves incredibly tasty Puerto Rican Cusine. “Bet you’ve never had any? Yes you!”
You will pretty much only find Lationos and Latinas at this joint. I’ve been going their for about 15 years now. “Love It!”
The food is oh so tasty, and the prices are tailor made for the sluggish economic times we now live in (2008). Hope we go on a upswing soon. “Very soon.” Most dishes are about $1.20 or $1.50 a piece. Yes this is not a typo, dishes that cost $1.20 a piece. You can make a small meal out of just two. if you’re Papa Relleno which is a Fried Potato Ball that isstuffed with ground beef as well. “Yum!” They also have wonderful Morcilla (Blood Sausage) and Pollo Fritto (fried chicken).
They have the “Coolest” sign you have ever seen hanging over the counter area that says “If WIFE CAN’T COOK, DON’T DIVORCE HER, BRING HER HERE,” Bring her here to eat with you.” The sign is written in both Spanish and English. “Cool as Hell!”
You’ve gotta LOVE IT, and if you ever go, you’ll just Love “F. Restaurant” down on the Lower East Side.
F. Restaurant….. Clinton Street, just North of Delancy
Sadly, this restaurant Closed a few years ago, but it was great while it lasted.

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” !!!
