Dinner around Port Authority

Hi,
I'm looking for a decent/reasonable place around 42nd and 8th for a quick dinner w/ a friend tonight. Under $20 (per person - no drinks) would be grand. We're open to all types of food. but a specific thai or mexican recommendation would be nice.
Thanks!

    For Thai, Pongsri Thai on 48th btwn 8th and Broadway isn't bad. I know that isn't a glowing recommendation exactly, but I think it might be the best Thai you can get in the area.

      Very cheap very delicious mexican. Then go next door to have delicious biscotti for dessert.
