Pork and Why do I Love all Products Made from it So! Spareribs are the “Best,” Bacon, Sausages, Pork Chops, Ham, Spam, McRibs, and? Yes I Love them all so! And Why? Why? What else? They’re Tasty! It’s Tasty! Pork and all things made from it. I Pity Vegetarians and Others who do not eat it, Pork, Ham, and Spam.

Robin Raisfeld in her story “Trendlet: It’s Baloney,” this week in New York spark my interest when I say the big beautiful picture of a slice of tasty Mortadella, “King of All Baloneys.”
As I read farther into the article, I was so happy to see a picture of a gorgeous “Taylor Ham and Egg Sandwich.” And it immediately brought out the in Jerseyite in me. As anyone who grew up or ever lived in New Jersey, they’ll tell you of their Love of “Taylor Ham,” the unofficial “State Meat.” Taylor Ham? Why? Well, first off, Taylor Ham was invented in Trenton New Jersey. It’s super tasty. Jerseyites and former ones (like Me) Love it, and you can only get it in New Jersey. More or less. Why? I don’t know. Can Jerseyites be smarter than New Yorkers who have never caught on to this wonderful Pork product from the Garden State. After moving to New York some 26 years ago, besides from missing my family, my only other regret of leaving New Jersey, is missing and yearning for my beloved Taylor Ham. You just can’t get it in the Big City. Well, hardly ever. Do New Yorkers not like it? Is it reserved for Jerseyites only? Don’t know! All I know is I miss it inside a Taylor Ham and Egg Sandwich or on my breakfast plate accompanying a couple fried eggs.
Reading the article and be reminded of my “Long Lost Love,” Taylor Ham, I’m also painfully reminded of another recent dumping by a Loved one. That being my beloved “McRib.” How I Love it so! After a brief Love Affair with her, way back in 1989. She disappeared! Why? I do not know. And for some 21 years. And then one lovely day last year. It was in October, what day I do not know. She reappeared. Back into my life once again. And the Love Affair was on again. On my part like it never ended. I Loved, as much and more than ever. Forgiving her and not think of the long cruel Separation brought on by her. She had deserted me. But I didn’t care. We got together more than 20 times this passed October, November, and was it a few days into December? I do not know. Once again, my beloved McRib disappeared. Into a dark December night. Why? I do not know? I only know that however long it may take. I’l wait. Just please my Love, do not make it another 21 years. My beloved McRib.

>DUMPLING HOUSES of the Lower East Side

99 Allen Pork Dumpling (the 1st to start the Dumpling House trend)

An order of Fried Pork Dumplings at “Vanessa’s Dumpling House and Vanessa’s
and

“Prosperity Dumpling” the Best Kept Secret of the Lot. Shaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!”

>New York’s Best Cheap Eats Deal, Pork Dumplings $1.00

>Know what New York’s Best Cheap Eats Deal is? No, it’s not “Grays Papaya” 2 Hotdogs and a Fruit Drink for $3.50, we love “Grays” and yes it is a Great Deal, but it just can’t beat 5 tasty Hand-Made Pork Dumplings for just a “Buck.” No it can’t. This is an even better deal than the Great Cheap Street Eats in South East Asia. I have eaten all over Asia, and the Street-Food just can’t be beat or it”Excellence and Variety,” but if you consider that you get a great Dish for just about $1.00 allover Asia; Bangkok, Saigon, Phuket, Cambodia, all over. The food that you get is just amazing! But if you consider that New Yorkers make an average of 10 times as much as the average South East Asian and you can get an order of Pork Dumplings on the Lower East Side of Manhattan for the same amount of money you pay for a portion of Street Food in
South East Asia, then maybe the 5 Pork Dumplings on the Lower East Side isn’t just the Best Food Deal in New York, but the World!

99 Allen Fried Dumpling was the first to start the Dumpling House Trend. Then came No. 1 Dumpling (now called Vanessa Dumpling House) and caught on like “Gangbusters” packed day and night. They never stop. In a tiny little shop, and you used to always have to wait to get an order or two. One order is enough as a in-between meal, and two orders is enough to make a complete meal that will fill you at just $2.00
No. 1 Dumpling built up some great business, packed 24/7. They had a tiny little shop and decide to expand, doubling in size to make a little dining room enough to hold about 20 people as opposed to the former narrow 3 foot wide space between wall and counter and a small counter to accommodate about 5 people. They mad the place a “Fancier” compared to what it used to be.
They didn’t raise the “price” of the Dumplings but they did what the Candy Bar Companies used to do, keeping the price the same, but making the portion size a little smaller. “Yes, they kept the price at $1.00, but instead of giving you 5 Pork Dumplings like before, they cut the portion size down to 4 Dumplings for $1.00” Yes, still a Great Deal (inflation). They also raised the price of the Sesame Pancake with Beef from $1.50 to $2.00. “Yes, still a great deal.
They have added a “Peking Duck Sesame Pancake” that’s yummy and a Bargain at just $2.25

Most of the hoards of people who pack into “Vanessa’s Dumpling House’ and wait on line, have no idea that just 2 blocks south is another great alternative to Vanessa’s. It’s “Prosperity Dumpling House” at 46 Eldridge Street and it’s never packed. Even more important is that the “Dumplings” are just as good as the ones at Vanessa’s. To top it off, you get 5 Dumplings whereby Vanessa’s gives you Four, and the Sesame Pancake with Beef is $1.50 to Vanessa’s $2.00
Hey, I don’t want to “Split hairs” but these things mean a lot to some people out there. I’m just reporting.

So, for just $3.50, you can get a great meal of Fried pork Dumplings and a tasty Sesame Pancake w/Beef sandwich. you can’t beat that. And if you want to “Splurge” on desert, you can go to one of several Chinese Bakery Cafes on Grand Street between Allen and Eldridge and have a coffee and a pastry for just $2.00 That’s just $5.50 for a meal followed by coffee and desert.
That’s what we call a “Cheap Date,” but the quality is just as good as if you paid $100.00 a head or more. Check it out.
