      This query comes up about twice a week. Posts on the same area are probably still on the first and second pages of this board, if you scroll a bit.

      There's Cafe Zaiya and Yaguro, Pampano Taqueria, Menchanko-Tei, Bayan for Filipino, etc. If you do a search, there's a REALLY good list of cheap spots that someone put up maybe three years ago.
