Since we are in a bit of a recession I'm starting the "NYC FOODIE Cheap Eats of the Week", where I let everyone in on my favorite 'cheap eats' destinations. I love to use the phrase "a good bang for your buck", and these restaurants will be just that!
To start it off, this week's "Cheap Eats of the Week" is Vanessa's Dumpling House which could very well be the best bang for your buck in all of NYC. After I stumbled upon this find last month, I could not stop coming back on a weekly basis. Why? Because not only is the food the cheapest I've ever encountered, it tastes really good too! We are talking prices of $1 (4 fried dumplings)-$2 (8 boiled dumplings). If you are a fan of dumplings then this place cannot be missed; it has some of the best! They have other cheap dishes too, such as a wonderful sesame pancake with peking duck for $1.75. That's right- that decimal is in the right spot! So for my top choice for NYC's best bang for your buck, check this place out and thank me later. Your wallet will NOT be any lighter.
