For a decade, this address was the home of Fried Dumpling, a beloved hole-in-the-wall dim sum dispensary that rivaled Prosperity and Vanessa’s just around the corner. Landlords Heaven Way Buddha Church booted the Lower East Side favorite in April 2009, but a year-and-change later, another dumpling spot opened here. With some rather misleading signage, we might add. The fare is just as cheap, yet lacks the same quality.

To this day, many customers believe that the Inexpensive Delicacies Company and Fried Dumpling are one and the same. Management is not pleased, and is finally clarifying the situation with a recently-placed announcement in the window:

The current dumpling shop at this location is Not the same dumpling shop that did business here from 1999 to 2009.  The previous dumpling shop is now located at 106 Mosco Street, New York, NY  10013

Where do you get your dumpling fix?
