Any decent East Village Chinese take-out options?

Hey all,

I've lived at 14th and A for the past 8 years, past 5 years with my wife. In that time period, we've found more Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese places with good take-out than we possibly know what to do with. But we've struggled to find a Chinese standby.

Grand Sichuan on St. Marks is ok, but while their take on Sichuan cuisine is generally fine, it's not nearly as reliable for the American-ized stuff, which is sometimes what we want. Our friends on the UES and West Village don't seem to have this problem. Are there any good options for quality Chinese delivery in the East Village? Thanks.

Best place for pho in NYC?

Hey all. I recently went to Pho 75 in Arlington, VA, had the Pho Tai, and became depressed that I couldn't think of any place offhand in NYC that was as good. I live in the East Village, and neither Bao Noodles nor Saigon Grill (back when I used to eat there) compares.

I'm sure that there's fantastic, inexpensive pho joints out there, I've just been too lazy to look. More than willing to head to the outer boroughs as well. What's good? Thanks!
