All hail 5 dumplings for a dollar! Located on 99 Allen Street, this was a tiny store that sold the simplest dishes. 5 fried dumplings for a dollar and boy is life good!
I ordered the US$1 dumplings from the really nice lady behind the simple counter, and a hot and sour soup.
I found the dumplings well fried, crunchy and surprisingly not oily. They were also filled with meat and chives. Life is brilliant with these US$1 dumplings.
This hot and sour soup was definitely taking those two flavours to the extreme. The two contrasting flavours were too much for me to finish.
The non-fussy restaurant. Order and collect your food at the counter and sit wherever you want.
