there is a website somewhere that lists meals by 'under $15' 'under $10' 'under $5' etc but i can't fucking find it. that was the jam when i was coming up here to visit.

there is also dumpling house on eldridge where they're 5 for $1. $2 will get you GORGED.

my favorite halal has to be 53rd, but that dude doesn't come on until like 10-11pm and the line is around the block. my favorite lunch halal is definitely rafiqi's, which has carts at 33rd/park, 47th/madison and i'm sure around soho.

if you're into booze, stick to the LES or willyburger for reasonable and often cheap cold beers.

the met is donation based. every time i've just walked in and never had anyone say anything about me not wearing one of the buttons. MoMA and several other museums are free +1 with time inc. ID's so if you know anyone that works there, make them take you out or make a fake time ID that you can flash and say "open sesame."

the main way to keep it cheap is don't stay at a hotel (craigslist a room, sleep on a friend's couch, find a hostel (there's one in bed stuy by my house that was suprisingly nice)) and to ride a bike (free) or get an unlimited metrocard for the month ($82) so you're not dumping a ton on transportation. you will almost never need to take a cab which is really good at draining your pockets.

^^Cheapest food is still in Chinatown, from $1 dumplings to $3 fried porkchop and rice. Careful from street vendors, but you can get $2 tripe and fried shit. Venture to Spanish Harlem (no longer Puerto Rican, but mostly Mexican) and get cheap tacos from a truck or cuchifritos from a variety of places.

Don't forget to pack a box of Imodium and you're good.


Where the FUCK u get $3 fried Porkchop and rice????? share! i haven't had 3 dollar pork chop over rice in years... and now that the price of rice going up...

I'll definetly check out some of your suggestions. Hvae any of you eaten at cucina de pesce im the east village? It looks nice with $10 early bird dinner specials. Sea bass and tuna. I'm a fish guy. How about beers? I'm really into belgians but can go for microbrews as well. Are there some spots I should hit?

No, not really. Isn't much going on. Nothing, in fact. You should check out Jersey City.

Minca is a bit out of the way on East 5 btwn A&B but it's cheap and better than the other alternatives imo (though you could debate that in the ramen noodle thread…)


I'll second Minca. I was just in there earlier this week for the first time in awhile and I had forgotten how good it was. Definitely one of the best bowls of ramen in the city.

How about beers? I'm really into belgians but can go for microbrews as well. Are there some spots I should hit?

Someone already mentioned it, but I'll also say that Craig's List is the way to go as far as vacation housing is concerned. I've stayed in hotels and craigs list sublets and had a far better and cheaper time with the sublets.

Fuck jersey city. It sucks. You know why? Polish mike lives there.


Check Irvington, NJ.
Lots of cool bars, good eats, and some decent boutiques.

I think you can take NJ transit.

Cough up the extra dough and stay IN manhattan. Have fun trying to get back to Hoboken or Jersey City at 3am.


i just booked a suite at an extended-stay suite in jersey city for 150/night. path system runs 24hrs, and there are two stations within walking distance from the hotel.

clinton st baking company on clinton/houston has a really good $10 burger and a beer special every day from like 4-8 or something.

they also have other fucking amazing food, but most of it is about $20ish for an entree, but well worth it.

^^ it's worth it to splurge at clinton street too. i've never fuxed with them for lunch/dinner, but breakfast/brunch items really are next level. egg & biscuit is unreal, pancakes are "best ever" worthy; you can't go wrong with just about anything on the menu.
