The ORIGINAL DUMPLING HOUSE
That Started The Whole Craze
No Longer in Business
Order of 4 PORK DUMPLINGS
They were 5 DUMPLINGS For $1.00
When I First Started Going to VANESSA DUMPLING
Long Beffore They Exploded
I was one of the First in NEW YORK to Discover these Great Super Cheap Chinese Dumpling Houses in the LOWER EAST SIDE of NEW YORK. 99 ALLEN on Allen Street just Below Delamcey Street was the FIRST. I started going there way back in about 2003 when you got a wopping 5 DUMPLINGS for Just $1.00 .. Dam??? Yes 5 for One Dollar. These days you get 4 for $1.50 which is till a pretty good deal and one of the BEST CHEAP EATS in the City Bar None. In Fact, this is probably the # 1 BEST There Is.
Yes 99 ALLEN was the first of the now famous and much loved Cheap Eats CHINESE PORK DUMPLING HOUSES. The Dumpling House on Eldridge Street around the corner form 99 Allen ccame next and did quite well. So well in fact they expanded (Double the size), got hugely popular with the masses and put 99 ALLEN Out of Business.
Next came PROSPERITY DUMPLING 3 blocks down on ELDRIDGE which I was one of the FIRST to discover. This place was GREAT but didn’t catch on the way VANESSA did and they went out of business as well.
VANESS Now has 3 Locations, the ORIGINAL in The Lower East Side, one on 14th STREET and one in WILLIANSBURG. It’s great to see them going into new neighborhoods and making their BEST CHEAP EATS of NEW YORK Available around the city.
It used be called Simply DUMPLING HOUSE
Before Expansion and Renovation
And Name Change
the Best Kept Secret of the Lot. Shaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!”
No longer in Business
“I LOVE PROSPERITY DUMPLING and used to get a couple orders for dinner after I got my $5 HAIR CUT at the CHINESE HAIR SALON up the block.”
