On a hot day last August someone took pictures of Prosperity Dumpling making food in an alley filled with rats and garbage, and it’s been closed ever since. Not that it was much of a surprise, I think we all overlooked the cleanliness (or rather the lack of cleanliness) at Prosperity Dumpling because the dumplings were so tasty…
But now the party is over and I’ve found a new dumpling spot that might be, may be, could be better than Prosperity Dumpling. I’m waiting for lightening to strike me down but it hasn’t so it must be true.
When you go, you must add all the sauces to the dumplings. Add the vinegar, the chili oil, and the sriracha because the combination is delicious. At 10 for $3, it’s not Prosperity dumpling prices but it’s damn close. Don’t try and share the 10 with anyone, after you taste one, you’ll want them all for yourself.
I have yet to try the hand pulled noodles but when you visit, you can watch the workers slamming noodle dough in the back.
As with the majority of Chinatown restaurants this place is cash only.
