        The horchata's still only a buck, though!

        1. I am so tempted to add 1.25-1.75 choices but i'll stick to 1.00 and under..

          Any chinatown bakery buns ranges from .50-1.00.

            There's also another 99 cent pizza place near Port Authority Terminal on 9th Ave. There are also some chinatown bakery style places in the Garment District as well.
