What the team says: “To show up to Tasty Dumpling, all you need is a $5 in your pocket. Order the $2 ready-to-go dumplings with a side of hot soup and you’re set. The restaurant is also centrally located in front of Columbus Park, where all the locals hang out.” -Peter
True to its name, the potstickers at this Mulberry Street dumpling house are some of the tastiest—and at less than two bucks a pop, possibly cheapest in NYC. Served five to an order in plastic clamshells, the options come with different fillings, but the first menu combo of chives and pork is by far the most popular. The dumplings are Beijing-style, which means the skins are on the thicker side and hold up beautifully to both pan-frying and boiling.
