Looking for downtown eats not expensive and not Japanese. Looking for something ethnic and interesting.

  1. Assuming you are in the business district. Grand Central Market. Lots of Mexican, Chinese and other options. Definitely not expensive. Qualifies as interesting.


    1. Cuban? Cuba Central @ 1st/Central

      Vietnamese and Chinese are as close as Chinatown. I like Pho 87 on Broadway, but lots of people like Pho 79 as well.

      You might also want to try a Farmer's Market. I went to the one on 5th yesterday (it's every Wednesday) and picked up some delicious hummus and taboulie with pita bread for $10. They serve all kinds of food, from rotisserie chicken to peruvian rice plates to bacon-wrapped hot dogs.
