In the annals of cheap eats, few places surpass a dumpling house for sheer value. XSG is no exception: For $1, gobble four meaty, pan-fried dumplings, stuffed with either pork-chive or pork-Chinese vegetable. Boiled chicken, shrimp and vegetarian dumplings are also available, for similarly bargain basement prices. The treats are hand-made, and you can watch the female proprietor roll out the dough and assemble the dumplings on a floured surface behind the counter. There are also steamy, rich sesame pancakes, which you can order in sandwich form-split and filled with carrots, cilantro, cucumber, and your choice of meat. A squirt of black vinegar zips it up.
