Who makes a superior version in Manhattan? Decades ago, there were several places in Chinatown that specialized in fried, boiled and steamed pork dumplings. One noteworthy establishment was on Pell street near Mott. Their fried dumplings were crunchy on the bottom, with thin wrappers, and juicy filling, and went for about $3 a plate.
I'm aware of the trend towards bargain-priced, gang-cooked dumplings, but I'm looking for a place that makes them much better, cooks them to order, and, presumably, charges accordingly.
Any ideas? And does anyone remember the place on Pell?
