Funky Ethnic Dive

Hey guys. My friends and I are looking for a fun, hole in the wall with exceptional, authentic food for tomorrow night. It can be any sort, we love everything! So hit us with your favorite neighborhood haunt where they barely speak english and the food is amazing.

The only criteria is cheap and in Manhattan proper. Thanks!!!

          The pho is awesome and I really like the bun as well.

            Dok Suni is totally not divey. It's definitely a nice joint.
