What the Wah Fung? Cheap Chinese Food Chinatown NY
79 Chrystie (At Grand St)
Chinatown New York NY
For those recession minded individuals or people who just want an honestly good meal for next to nothing, look no further than Wah Fung down in the lower east side / Chinatown. They have the 3 meats over rice special for just $3.75. Fuck yes! I found myself starving a few weeks ago and got the 2 meat special for just $3.25 . The meat selections are Roast Duck, Soy Sauce Chicken, and Roast Pork.The roast pork (cha xiu) is incredible and worth it on its own. Get it with the chicken or duck and you are all set. They guy even drizzles the greasy meat sauce over the meat and rice for you to give it an extra caloric flavor. This place also serves some cheap noodle dishes on a steam cart, but honestly stay away from that. The lady who serves those items is not nice nor is the food. I sat and ate my food on the makeshift table/chair combination in the back and over the course of the time I was there, not one person ordered from her. It’s all about the greasy meat over the rice. Wah Fung is also conveniently located outside of one of those Chinatown bus lines so you’ll see an interesting mix of clientele. Nevertheless, the food turns over fast and it’s very fresh (and cheap). Check it out!
