This place is a madhouse for lunch. Good cheap eats and good quality food. The sesame pancake with pork is excellent.
Really wanted to love this place - came highly recommended from foodie ppl but not my taste. I like my dumplings a little fancier. And wontons a little less spicy
Vanessa's, offers dirt cheap dumplings and New York's best sesame pancakes. Grab a full meal (we're talking a pancake, dumplings and beer) for less than $10.
Great (cheap!) dumplings, but before you go to those pork and chive, give the wontons in spicy sauce a go. They're a bit more expensive, but totally worth it.
Scallion pancake with egg for breakfast. Scallion pancake with duck for dinner. Dumplings for always.
Not as cheap as the other Chinatown hole-in-the-wall places, but still way yummy.
