Fried Dumpling

The only English words the ladies at Fried Dumpling know are 'œHow Many?' And that’s enough, because the answer is usually five. Yes friends, you get five of the best dumplings you’ve ever had for $1. And apparently instead of change they give you dumplings. I bought a 75-cent coke and instead of giving me back a quarter, she just gave me another dumpling. Sweet right? The funny thing though is if you come and say you want $20 worth of dumplings. The ladies kinda bug out, curse at you in Chinese, and then go into hyper drive. My fantasy is to bring in that Japanese eating champion kid, (Kobayashi or something like that) throw down a $50 and let him face-off against the dumpling ladies. It would probably be the best fifty bucks ever spent.

    Sounds just as good as a bagel meal! Probably, good 1000kcal/ which is as much as I used to eat in college!
