Heading back to work after running an errand in
Soho I decided that it would only be a minor detour
to check out a dumpling place on Allen Street that
I'd read about.
The place is called Fried Dumpling, and it is nondescript with a small counter and a few
tables. They sell portions of 5 dumplings for
$1. Located at 99 Allen Street, on the west side
of the street just south of Delancy. They also sell several other things, such as scallion pancakes, but I only had the dumplings,
which were really terrific. They did seem a bit oily,
but I realized that I normally eat steamed, and these are fried after all.
