6. Kai Feng Fu, Sunset Park

We haven’t forgotten about you Brooklyn. Unsurprisingly, your best shot at dollar dumplings can be found in Sunset Park, where they stand tall with the best of Chinatown.
Pros: You don’t have to take the subway into Manhattan. What more could you want, Brooklynites?
Cons: I’ve found from personal experience that it’s hard to convince other people to trek out to Sunset Park, especially for dumplings. So, you may be eating alone. (That, or I’ve got the wrong kinds of friends.)
