We discovered a new (to us) dumpling place this weekend! Vanessa’s Dumpling House on the Lower East Side has dirtcheap and delicious food. We spent $10 total last night and had dinner for both us and lunch today!
We sampled vegetarian dumpling soup, vegetarian steamed buns, pork and chive fried dumplings, and a roast pork sesame pancake sandwich.

My Yelp review, which is linked to above:
I was shocked by how much food we got for so little money. I ordered veggie soup dumplings and a steamed veggie bun, and I had to bring most of the soup home. It was so good, though! We left already planning our return trip.
It’s a little snug in there, and we didn’t have anywhere to sit, but one of the ladies cleared a spot on the counter for us, which was nice. We decided to stay there even when a table opened up because we were enjoying watching the dumplings be made.
My only real problem with the meal was that I accidentally ate some paper on my steamed bun (ew!), but I kind of figure that’s my fault.
