Come hungry for my mini-tour of the best dumpling spots in Chinatown.

The first stop is Tasty Dumpling. There are both meat and vegetarian dumpling options. It costs $1.25 for 5 dumplings. The scallion pancake is a worth a try, too!

The second spot is Fried Dumpling, just around the corner. The menu is more restricted here, as is seating. The cost for dumplings is $1.50 for 5. Oftentimes the cook is also the cashier, and will only speak Chinese.

The final spot is Namwah Tea House. This is a more traditional restaurant that serves dim sum. The dumplings are a highlight. These run closer to $4 for 5 dumplings, but there are lots of other food options on the menu. Lunch and dinner hours can get busy, so there may be a wait.

All that and Dim Sum
Evan did a nice job finding some hole in the wall spots for cheap yet tasty dumplings. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. Not much walking required at all but a big appetite is a must.
A fabulous short tour of dumpling tasting with Evan. Not only did we eat the most amazing dumplings we got to spend time with Evan a local with great knowledge of the city. He gave us tips on where to go that we had not heard of. and we definately will be trying those dumplings again. Not only would i recommend this tour i will be using like a local again when i travel.
Fab dumplings!
Evan was a great host and introduced us to three dumpling restaurants in NYC - all within a short walk of each other. From traditional pork & chive pot stickers and pancakes through to a full range of dim sum at the famous Nom Wah Tea Parlor, it was a great insider guide. Evan also very generously shared other tips and ideas for our stay in NYC - and very patiently accommodated our 7 month old baby, who joined us for the tour. Thanks Evan!
