We are planning a big trip out East this coming summer. Heading to NH for a family reunion, then over to VT to show my daughter where I grew up and revisit some of my favorite places. The pinnacle of the trip will be 2 1/2 days in Manhattan (Friday -Monday morning). I am looking for suggestions for cheap eats there, in Manhattan, as most of what we are doing is there. We're doing Chinatown so when there we will just pop in to a place that looks good, and of course we will eat a slice or 2 of pizza. I used to live in the Village, for a brief period of time, and then dated a girl that lived in Manhattan but those days are long, long gone so I am kind of out of touch. Because we are on a tight budget, this time, and with our 9 year old daughter, we are skipping the high-end, trendy, well known places. We are up for just about any cuisine, including my daughter. Noodle shop recommendations, Indian places, Latino places, Italian, delis, etc. we are up for it. If anyone knows of a great place to get pupusas in Manhattan I'd love to know about it. While we will probably splurge on 1 nicer meal, for the rest I'd like to keep it under $20 per person (better yet $10-15 per person although I know that can be hard to do in Manhattan). Dives and hole-in-the-wall places are great, just as long I wouldn't be concerned about the safety of my daughter. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
