In the middle of bustling Chinatown in New York city is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant called Prosperity Dumpling that is known for having the best Chinese dumplings in New York, at the best price.
At the price of 4 dumplings for $1.00, and also affordable soups, you can get a huge meal here for around $5.00 USD!
It is frequented often by locals - we ran into a friendly man who travels across town regularly to buy dumplings here. The restaurant only has a few stools for dining in, so I recommend getting take-out and walking to a nearby park to enjoy your dumplings.
The Hot and Sour Soup had good flavor and was not too acidic. The dumplings were amazingly tasty - so much that I wish I had some right now! The Wun-tun soup was also delish.
