Sleek Dumpling Options Popping Up Downtown


For years cheap dumplings have been a staple of NYC’s Chinatown. Prosperity Dumpling – which recently relocated from Eldridge St. to Bensonhurst in Brooklyn – long offered 5 for $1 dumplings to hungry patrons with little money to spare. Vanessa’s Dumpling House, which has two locations in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn, likewise offers 4 dumplings for $1.50. Recently though more expensive options have been popping up. Nom Wah Tea Parlor offers Dim Sum offerings at its tiny walkup counter on Kenmare St. for those who wish to spend a bit more. Additionally, Mimi Cheng’s opened a location on Broome St. which offers composed Bento boxes for hungry lunchers looking for tasty dumplings. Seemingly the market will support both kinds of establishments serving different types of dumpling seekers.
