They sell cheap food here: sit-in with 5 item selections is $4.50 and carry-out is $4.00. This is the cheapest place by $0.25 in the Chinatown that I know of. It is located on the Grand Street, right after you cross the Bowery, right next to the smelly market place.
They up the prices every-so-often, so I don't know what it costs now or if the price hike took place: since I went here in March-April period.
I got all of this stuff. It wasn't anything great but it was warm and tasty and I did not complained.
