One dollar fried dumplings competition:
I am wondering if anyone has ventured into the new Panda Dumpling House ( 熊貓鍋貼) on Eldridge Street (67 Eldridge Street ), sign reads 熊貓鍋貼 Panda Dumpling House, located corner of Hester and Eldridge. Compared to Prosperity Dumpling (興旺鍋貼) at 46 Eldridge, which the best 1.00 fried dumplings.
Each serves fried dumplings, the cheap ones at 1.00, full of mushed pork and chive, on the menu as Chive Pork Fried Dumplings 韭菜豬肉鍋貼 (jiucaizhurouguotie).
I am curious as to what others have found on sampling chive pork dumplings at these two places, one being new, while the other quite settled for more than a decade. Does the new competitor Panda House have some promise for those desiring tasty and inexpensive freid dumplings, in an atmosphere that is more comfortable to sit in, or does the veteran shop down the street remain the favored spot?
Panda House does offer more such as noodles, and have yet to try them. For dumplings I have sampled them already a few times, and save my comments for later.
