Manhattan Dumplings

I just moved here, and yeah, I actually live in Chinatown -- please help me find some decent, cheap places to eat that do not involve dumplings or variations on a theme of tripe

So, I got headhunted by an ad agency, moved up here in a rush, and found myself a place smack-dab in the middle of Chinatown. I am literally above New Green Bo.

I love my adopted neighborhood -- nothing gets the blood going like slipping in fish guts as I step out the door and head to work. I love the fact I can get duck-web soup, and GOOD duck-web soup, I might add, at 2 in the morning.

I like that there is a great Karaoke bar just down the street with a midget bouncer.

All of this is exactly what I was looking for, when I moved here from Atlanta. But. I have now eaten at just about every place south of Canal -- well, not every -- I have only been here a week. But, like, a lot of the places you are 'supposed' to eat.

So, yeah. I am getting a little tired of Chinese is all. I was wondering if anyone here has any advice -- I'll eat the hell out of just about anything -- but I work long hours and need something close to where I am...

Any ideas?

Wow. Sorry for the epic first post.
