For $1.50, you can get a plate of dumplings at Kai Feng Fu Dumpling House. The dumplings come stuffed with pork and leek, and they’re a little bit crispy with thick, chewy skins. This place also serves steamed dumplings - which are more substantial but slightly less compelling than the fried ones - as well as a bunch of soups, some incredibly meaty pork buns, and salty scallion pancakes that make for a nice little snack. Just be aware that this place is cash-only, and there are only a few tables inside.
