Vanessa Dumpling House is a Chinese dumpling house that serves amazing food. With a name like “dumpling house”, one may automatically think of an upscale place. However, Vanessa’s dumpling house is quite the opposite: it is a fast-paced, casual spot on the Southside of Williamsburg. One may even consider it to be a “hole in the wall” location. This means that the location is kind of small and the prices are extremely affordable. The staff is very friendly and gives Brooklyn a positive face and attitude.
I have been coming here for years and I have never been disappointed by the food or the service. The atmosphere is always so welcoming — this is a place for great conversations and memories to be made. Vanessa’s is known for their dumplings, but their smoothies and sesame seed pancakes are great as well. I also love this place because they have a variety of foods for different dietary restrictions, ranging from vegetarian to carnivores.
I recently found out Vanessa’s Dumpling house is a mini-chain restaurant within New York City, so they do have some location in Manhattan if you are staying in the city. Their website has the locations and the menus of each location. Whenever you are in New York, make a stop at Vanessa’s Dumpling House for a taste of how New York does Chinese dumplings!
