i've noticed a few threads about the best cheap food in nyc (under 10 $), and I want to make a specifically vegetarian thread! I'll start with some of my favorites...

truffled egg toast at 'ino
pho chay at pho pasteur
eggs shakshouka at mimi's hummus
falafel at taim
grilled gruyere at 'wichcraft
eggplant with spicy garlic sauce at lan sheng

what about you?

      Was going to post the same thing. Really doesn't get any better. An amazing plate for $4.

        Rojak has belacan (shrimp paste) in it, typically, so it won't count as vegetarian for many people.

        Cold Noodles Sichuan Style at Grand Sichuan (or put in the name of a Sichuan restaurant whose rendition you prefer)

        Ditto for the Cold Asparagus with Scallion Sauce

        Mushroom Dumplings at Dim Sum Go-Go

        Also the Chinese Parsley Dumplings there

              pretty much the entire dim sum menu @ vegetarian dim sum, but i'm a sucker for gluten and soy.
