cheap eats near grand central

I'm sure this is discussed, but I'm looking for places that HAVE CHEAP NON-IRISH CUISINE. HEALTHY FOOD PREFERREDfor tommorow when I go to St. Patricks Parade. Anything under $10 for lunch will be appreciated. And yes, I have checked out MidTownLunch but am looking for other recommendations.

      1. I think the reason you are not getting much of a response is that (1) many places in the vicinity of Grand Central do not serve lunch on Saturday and (2) those places that are open will not fit your budget. And, btw, a piece of really important information that is missing is whether that less than $10 is supposed to cover everything, i.e., food, beverage, tax & tip?

        It seems to me you need to consider either eating in a different neighborhood where you might be able to find what you are looking for (e.g., Uncle Nick's, on 9th & 50th, serves gyro & souvlaki sandwiches for $4.95), and/or increasing your budget.

        1. i think that you can get a number of things in the grand central food court that are tasty and will fit your budget. there's also 'wichcraft in bryant park for tasty sandwiches, but i don't know if they're open on weekends, or open in the winter for that matter. never mind--it's nasty out, and you wouldn't want to be dining outdoors anyway.
