Is this possible? I work in the area and can't find anything to eat for lunch. Totally sick of everything around here because it's too commercial or too expensive because of the tourists.
There's a Thai restaurant called Pongsri on 48th, between 7th and 8th which has one good item. I've tried several things on the menu and most of them have been disappointing except Panang Chicken, $7.50 including tax - takeout. My coworkers and I think the quality of the food probably improves if you dine in.
Any other good places? Please, help a starving chowhound! I don't want to spend over $10 for lunch, $5 would be nice.
