Coming from Montreal, suggestions?

  • 3

Hi guys, I'm a student coming down from Montreal - was wondering if there was any must-trys in Manhattan. Student budget, so around $30 for dinner would be good. We have plenty of great french food up here, but maybe you guys have more interesting local food? Or maybe asian/ethnic? Thanks!

    Across the street from Amazing 66 is Big Wong King at 67 Mott Street. Stop in there for the best Cantonese BBQ Pork.
