2. Fried Dumpling, Mosco Street
106 Mosco Street
New York, NY 10013 [Map]
Nestled in a small alley between Mott Street and Mulberry Street right off the main drag is Fried Dumpling, the most creatively named spot on our list. The space is cramped and starkly lit, so Prosperity patrons will feel right at home.
Pros: It’s right in the center of old Chinatown, where any other dumpling dish you’ll find will be four to five times the price. But here, Fried Dumpling still manages to keep them at $1 (again, we don’t want to know).
Cons: As Foursquare and Yelp reviews suggest, its dumpling chefs can be a bit hostile to customers. They also mix the most watered down dumpling sauce in Chinatown… dangerous business if we have something to say about it.
