  1. One of my favorite meals (lunch or dinner) for under $10 is at Taim. They have a platter that includes falafel, amazing pita bread, and is served with hummus, tabouli and israeli salad and 3 sauces on the side: amba, srug, and tahini. We're talkin 7.50! The best deal around and the freshest food ever!

    Taïm
    222 Waverly Pl., New York, NY 10014
    between Perry and 11th Sts.
    212-691-1287

    (closest to 1 train at Christopher OR 2,3 at 14th St - exit at 12th & 7th)

    1. I love Blue Dog Cafe, on 25th just west of 6th (and very close to the 23rd Street stop on the F/V, but also easily walkable from the 23rd Street stop on the R/W and 1 trains).

      Their sandwiches (which are wonderful) are a little pricy, but one can still easily get out of there for less than $10.

      1. There's a great place down the street from the Hotel Sofitel.

        Sorry I can't provide more details...my last trip to NYC was 2 years ago.

        1. Dumping House on 118 Eldridge. 10 pork and chive dumplings, a sesame "pancake"-it is like a tasty little sandwich stuffed with herbs and meat, and a tea/soft dirnk for about $5-$6. there is a subway stop a few blocks away...anyone recall which? I think the J line stop at Bowery in Chinatown. You'll have enough money left over for a dessert at a bakery.

          1. F train to East Broadway: Happy Joy on corner of Canal/Essex where $3.25 gets you 3 Chinese/Malaysian choices over rice. I usually go for the spicy, addictive curry chicken and whatever veggies look good.
            El Castillo down the street on Madison/Rutgers where $10 buys you basically the whole menu. Great rice/beans, roast chicken, pernil, mofongo, cubano, chicharon, etc.
