My parents pride themselves in finding good cheap eats around our neighborhood (i.e., Monterey Park). This includes:
Vietnamese sandwiches at Ba Le on the corner of Valley and Atlantic for $1.75.
Lunch specials at NYC Seafood on the Corner of Atlantic and Garvey for $3.50 - $5.00.
Juk w/three items at Dings in the strip mall on Garvey and Garfield.
Anymore suggestions from the frugal chowhound crew?
