I love a good food bargain — and probably one of the best in Chinatown is at Fried Dumpling, on Mosco Street (the original branch is on Allen) next to the quite excellent Bangkok Center Grocery. Here you can get five big juicy pork and scallion pan fried dumplings for a whole dollar. There’s a scant few stools where you can eat your meal on a shelf on the wall inside, or if the weather is nice, you can take your paper plate of piping hot dumplings outside and eat Al Fresco, which is what we chose to do during Spring Taste of Chinatown.
The Fried Dumpling store on Mosco Street in Chinatown.
Dumplings are being rolled out, cut and filled at a breakneck pace here.
Here they are, five for a dollar, served on a paper plate.
