Chinatown "over rice" dishes

dg5411 | May 23, 2008 12:25 PM

My coworkers and I and up ordering chinese for lunch a lot since a) we work across the street from chinatown; and b) we are poorly paid government workers and chinese food can be cheap

We tend to go for the "over rice" dishes. These are usually some kind of stir fried meat/vegetable combo served with white rice for about $3.75-$4.50. Due to time and money constraints, we don't usually go for the fancier and more involved dishes.

Anyone have any thoughts on the best places to get this kind of food in chinatown? We used to be fond of Moon House before it closed. Are there any other dishes in this price range that would make for a good lunch?
