Why locals love it

Locals love Vanessa's because this place supplies ridiculously cheap, deliciously authentic dumplings. In addition to these dumplings they also offer some quality Beijing style stuffed pancakes, sandwiches, soups, and even smoothies. It's also quite conveniently located to all the magical happenings going down on Bedford Avenue.

Why you should visit it

It may almost always be hot and crowded inside but isn't that part of the New York experience? You'll wait in in that astonishingly long line but once your tastebuds discover the magic of Vanessa's Dumplings you'll realize it was all worth it. Once you leave NYC you may even find yourself waking up from the occasional Vanessa's Dumpling dream.

Special tip

They also have locations across NYC, including their flagship store in the Lower East Side.
