- These eats are real. And cheap. Clockwise from top left: Falafel pita sandwich from Taim, cheeseburger from JG Melon, Spicy Rizzak from Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop, and salt baked squid from Congee.
Two weeks ago, James Boo emailed a group of food bloggers in New York City (myself included) if they'd like to contribute to a cheap eats guide. And less than two weeks later (i.e., super-damn-fast), it's here: Real Cheap Eats NYC. 123 recommended eats under $10 from 22 trustworthy contributors, spanning a buttload of cuisines (I didn't count, I just know it's a lot) in all five boroughs. No ads, no slideshows; just sweet photos and short descriptions (and there's a mobile version of the site for iPhone and Androids, for those of you who actually live in the 21st century, unlike me, who still has a dumbphone). We've got pizza, sandwiches, noodles, rice dishes, tacos, burgers, desserts, and more, along with a section for vegetarians. If you like those foods, Real Cheap Eats is for you. And if you don't...my god, why are you reading this site? Ahhh get awaaay [virtual pushes you out].
Hope you enjoy the site! More sub-$10 recommendations are always welcome!
