Prosperity Dumpling

CHINA

In a world where dumplings are now $1.25 for 5, Prosperity is maybe the last place to still only charge $1. You will have to elbow others in this tiny 8' X 8' box to get to the counter, but don't be shy to approach and shout out your order. If you don't, the next 4 people in the door will. Also a steal, grab a bag of 50 for $8 to make at home, and enjoy the spectacle of the kitchen as you wait for your order.

While $1.25 out in Flushing might make you just as full, $1.75 for a sesame pancake here at Prosperity is laughably cheap when the amount of food is considered. And they are delicious!


The Brooklyn location serves up the exact same fair for the same prices, but I just didn't have the same experience there, as the space is so open and spartan. They also advertised a few soups, but no one seemed to be ordering those, at least this day. It is nice to eat at the window though and have some space to peer outside at busy 8th Avenue.
