Chinatown's best cheap eats. (NYC)

Business Front
Wah Fung No.1 Fast Food

Like everyone else, I have developed some habits while being locked up inside. One of those habits is the excessive amount of time I spend watching Youtube videos. I either move between things to do in New York and travel videos of the places I want to visit next.

One day I stumbled across a New York City cheap eats video that had a particular restaurant selling meals below five dollars. The reviews backed it up and, before I knew it, I was in Chinatown.

Meals are $4.50 each (Duck is more)

Wah Fund No.1 Fast Food in NYC is a fan favorite. If you don't believe me, believe the line of people you will meet when you stop by.

After waiting what felt like an eternity, I made it to the front of the line.

They always have a line

I went in and sampled two of the meals. I tried the chicken and the pork. Both came in at a total price of $9. Although small, the meal is enough to fill you up. There is also an option of duck. The last time I tasted duck didn't go so well, so I decided to skip that one.

Seating options are non-existent but, there is a park next door if you are hungry. I opted to take mine home. Once at home, I sat and ate both meals and decided I should have tried the duck.

Normally, cheap meals lack something. To have a great meal and not compromise on taste, you couldn't ask for a better deal. If you're visiting New York and are on a budget, you can't go wrong by stopping at this cheap eats paradise.
