Just moved to Parkchester (The Bronx)...

...actually, I just moved to NYC in general and Parkchester in particular. I'm by Unionport Rd and E Tremont Ave, and closest to the Parkchester stop of the #6 train. I couldn't resist a one-bedroom apt I could afford without a roommate that had air conditioning! Anyway, I am working at Hunter College (68th & Lexington). I don't cook much. I'm looking for inexpensive, healthy (and/or) interesting food near home and work to frequent frequently. I am willing to try almost any kind of food. I'll happily eat vegetarian or even vegan food (though I am by no means a vegetarian). My attitude towards spice is "the more, the better". I'll try the foods of pretty much any ethnicity. I am also fond of good, simple, old-school diner-type food. Bars with good beer selections that aren't too pricey would also be appreciated greatly.

Eventually, I'll want to know about date-worthy places and such, but now I'm looking to find the places that will become my "everyday" stops. Food trucks are great as long as they aren't too overblown. Little hole in the wall places usually end up my favorites.
