Cheapest Asian Meal in Town (2008)

Fried Dumpling

The Chinese have aced out every other nationality in their quest for cheap meals, and a new string of dollar eateries has appeared on the margins of Chinatown. One greenback at Fried Dumpling gets you a Styrofoam container of wonderful, meat-stuffed dumplings laced with scallions and a dipping sauce marrying soy and vinegar, while another dollar buys a bowl of mung-bean gruel or a quartet of doughy pork buns. Eat your ass off for way under $5!
