Near The Airport?

I'm going to be stuck at the American Airlines Conference Center for several days in November, and without a car. Is there anything interesting to eat within a not-too-expensive cab ride of the airport?

New Green Bo A couple of questions

The portions are quite large at NGB. Two orders of dumplings and an entree could do it; but the (happy) problem at NGB is that there is a kind of relentlessness to dumplings, and after 2 or 3, you're ready to taste something else. So take everyone's advice: order more than you need and take the rest home. It's very cheap.

Don't miss the Shanghai Kau Fu in the cold dishes: it's like nothing you've ever eaten. Looks like pieces of foam insulation that got soaked by a leaking pipe, tastes like - well, just order it. Mushroomy and smooth.

Best Halal Cart?

On the way to a film at MoMA yesterday, a friend introduced me to the halal rice-chicken-veg carts around 53rd and 5th Ave. She was distressed that she couldn't find "the" cart, which is distinguished, she claimed, by its long lines and excellent food. The food we ate (from another cart in the area) was very good nonetheless. (And cheap! $5 for more chicken, yellow rice, onions and peppers, and salad than you can finish.) Are there any favorites, in this area of Manhattan or any other?

Cheap and Good Near Union Square?

Are there any recommendations for a cheap place for dinner in the Union Square area? Something burger-ish would be fine.
