Vanessa's Dumpling House
Posted by Tommy on 01/14/2005
If you know anything about dumplings, this is the place to be. I've been a dumpling lover my whole life, and Dumpling House dumplings are by far the best dumplings in the city. Even better than the best ones I've had in Hong Kong. Joe's Shanghai doesn't even come close to Dumpling House. All of their dumplings are delicious and their Hot & Sour soup is also to die for.

Delicious. I'd say even better than joe's shanghai soup dumplings. Also, don't forget to try their sesame pancakes, which are also incredibly delicious. The first time up to the window, I got my 5 dumplings lickity-split. Second time up, it took me 15 minutes to buy a sack of frozen dumplings (3 people who cut in front of me got serviced). Also, the counter area is not clean. Besides that, however, I encourage all new yorkers to try dumplings house.

Quick tasty lunch!This place is jumping around lunchtime.Dumpling house boils the dumplings then fries them in a flat bottom pan for a few minutes.5 dumplings for a buck!! Pork or veggie ,both equally satisfying. Smart move is to pony up $5 or $10 and get a bag of 30 frozen of either variety (both) and take them home! 4 minutes boiled and 3 minutes fried (for crispy bottom and chewy pasta) in your pan! If you're not of Asian descent you gotta get in there and order or you'll be left in the crowd. So worth it!
