    This poster did a pretty amazing job on $20 a day:

      Saigon Sandwich and Tu Lan (which I might get in trouble for for saying this on this board).

      If you don't like Chinese though, Tu Lan could be slightly inaccessible, despite the many differences between Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine, there are still a few parallels.

        Try the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturday morning.
