Vanessa's Dumplings in New York City's Chinatown

0

When I stepped into the bathroom at the Chinatown Dumpling House, Vanessa’s, I was pretty taken aback, too.  While it was absolutely covered from ceiling to floor with graffiti and stickers and looked like something out of pre-Giuliani NYC, it was immaculately clean, and smelled of a fresh wiping of Clorox bleach.  Go, Vanessa’s, go!

Don’t leave without trying the dumplings.  A meal here is crazy cheap (mine came in at $7.25), is super tasty, and while it’s not exclusively vegetarian, they certainly have enough items on the menu to cater to the veggie eater.  Add this to your radar of cheap eats in the city.  And don’t forget, Chinatown bathrooms > subway bathrooms, always.
