your favorite hole-in-the-wall places.
OK so we can all look up nice restaurants in Zagat but what about the cheap but good places? And when I say cheap I mean CHEAPPPP, no decor, no non-sense food, getting full for $5 or less...yea it may be plain and blah but you know you love it :D

my picks :

-Yummy Dumpling (Mulberry Street, across from Columbus Park in Chinatown) - one of those dumpling shops that sell $1 for 5 dumplings and a whole lot of other good stuff.

-66 Lai Seafood/Taiwanese Restaurant (Prince Street, in Flushing) - OK so this place isn't a hole in the wall but they have a lot of good cheap rice dishes...chicken and tomato!! woohoo.

-69 (69, Bowery Street, Chinatown) - open past midnight for the after club hoppers, cheap richard simmons food, quick service, and dolla dolla bills posted everywhere on the walls, whatst not to love.

-Bo Kai (corner of Bayard and Mulberry, Chinatown) - Chinese/Viet country type food..I think an old Zagat review even described it as a "hole in the wall" haha. but the noodle soups are good and of course they are known for their country duck.

There's another dumpling spot on Mosco Street that leads to Columbus Park. Personally I can't tell the difference so if one if crowded or still making a new batch go to the other one.

There's another dumpling spot on Eldridge Street that's popular and well known with non-Asians.

There's also another one on Allen Street, though not as good as the other ones.

lol I love dumplings.

Bo Kai has the best "lo siu ap" or country duck or whatever they say it in english.

69!!! Hahaha my favorite place to eat at 4 a.m. when I come back from partying.

And the rice noodle stands that they have around Chinatown. Especially the one that used to be on the corner of Hester and Bowery.

Chinatown is the best place for a dirt cheap meal that is decent.

I also like to get Grey's Papaya when i'm in a mood for a hot dog (rarely).

There's also this Indian place on Houston that has a rice bowl for $2.

in boston, the best pizza you can get is at new york pizza on tremont. at $2 a slice, you get a nice, generous slice.

there's not much room to sit there, just 6 tables but the guys are friendly and it's a short walk down from the movie theater.

i keep hearing that the best pizza in boston is pizzeria regina in fanueil hall and the north end. but i'm too cheap to shell out 2.50 for that. lol.

If you are in Richmond, VA

Check out Cha Chas down near Canal Street. === Wednesdays are All You Can Eat Burittos. You can feed about 3 people under 15 bux so I have heard. :)

^pizzeria regina is really good but so are a ton of places for about $3.50 a slice.

pizza (for me at least) is NEVER worth that much per slice. lol. i might as well go to anna's for that much.

there's this one place in chinatown that's really well hidden off of kneeland st in boston's chinatown called sam hop. probably the best place to get chinese food for 6 bucks.
