Nice Dumplings (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)
Need a quick fix for your hunger and you’re in a budget, I guess no one can beat this price in Auckland CBD for NZ$5.00 / 3 pcs or NZ$8.00 / 6 of Pan Fried pork buns, or $9.00 / 10 pcs or $13.00 / 15 pcs for Pan Fried/Steamed Dumplings and these are not served in diminutive sizes, each piece is quite hefty with a good weight on it, so definitely there is value on this one. Usually, cheap stuff when it comes to food is usually (but not all the time) associated with disgusting food, what you get from Nice Dumplings is not bad at all, well it is not your Huami quality dumpling but it is better than average.
We tried several of their offerings and all of them were decent, you might think they skimp on the fillings but it was more than enough, add to that the extra sauces they give you on the side, no wonder why little hole-in-the-wall dumpling shop on Lorne Street have been feeding students in a budget for I guess more than 5 years now.
It is a cheap feed, cannot complain about the food given the price. It is not posh, it is not gourmet, there are no seats just a stand-up table beside the street, but it does the trick, and yes it might be better compared to some expensive ones. The guy that sells them always serves it with a smile so what more can you ask for.

So cheap! My blogpost today is on steamed buns too! What a coincidence.
