Any $1.00 food in your neighborhood ???

Right at the corner of Divison/Catherine rest a TOFU/SOY Product place!

Within there, sell $1.00 or under products including soy drink (sweeten or unsweeten) for .75 cents. A great bargain for it!

or sweet herbal tea (ha goo choe) for .50 cent. even better bargain!

Sauce can overcome and bring back to life a dried, hard and dead piece of meat. It can save your poor cooking. It is King. Please tell us your FAVORITE sauce and HOW to make it.

My favorite is Thousand Island mix with onion bits.
Slap it on a burger!

Another is Olive Oil and Parmesan Grated Cheese!
Soak it in Toasted Italian bread!

throw fresh pepper, celery, onions with tuna or left over chicken (can be dry as hell) in a magic bullet or blender [caution! don't over blend!]. add mayo.

toast your bread crispy and while it's still hot, lay a piece of swiss chess over and
VOILA....your chicken or tuna salad served with cold and hot. ENJOY!!!!

add mustard or salad dressing and a slice of lettuce.

Frozen Yogurt near the Empire State Building?

They did take the idea from the original RED MANGO, which is coming to NYC. I can't wait....I tried it in Pinkberry and it wasn't really all that sweet...very sour with the fruits. Rumors are, red mango has it sweeter. Plus why are they being so nasty that i was taking pictures with my camera. So they are afraid that I will copy what they did to red mango and be sued, and steal their ideas likewise? Please! Save your money for Red Mango!

At the Corner of Eastbroadway / Pike Street. A street vendor sell a typical Chinese Flat rice noodle roll for $1.00 with combination of sauce/oil and seasonings.

FOR ANOTHER DOLLAR: They also serve (Jook or Congee) Slowcooked soft rice, almost like oatmeal, flavored with peanuts/squid or 1000 year egg/pork. It quite good with a battered fried dough call (yow teew)

FOR ANOTHER DOLLAR AND SOME CHANGE: There serve this Authentic stick rice with peanut and pork with a bit of pork fat with some lentil bean or (green bean inside).
This stuff will fill your belly up like no other food. Sticky rice is steamed. It is cover with lotus leaf and bind with strings. Excellent choice for some locals and visitors!

There are two other vendors i'm familiar with: one is in Rutgers/Eastbroadway.
Another is at Grand, between bowery and christie!

All in New York, Manhattan, Chinatown!
