10 Best Incredibly Cheap Eats in New York

7. Swedish meat balls at IKEA - Disappointed in me for including this place? If you have a yen for the salty and oniony meats, this set meatball meal will provide total satisfaction. And the price is right: $3.99, except at special times of the week, when it's $2.49. Check website. And the dining room is nice enough for a date. 1 Beard Sreet, Brooklyn, 718-246-IKEA

6. Chile Relleno Taco at Tacos Cachanilla - The tacos placeros that have been popping up in taquerias and in Mexican eats trucks are one hell of a deal. This one ($5) features a cheese-stuffed and freshly fried Poblano pepper of humongous dimensions in a homemade tortilla the size of a vinyl record album. And to top off your hunger, the 'effin thing is also filled with rice, sauteed chiles, and French fries! 5807 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-492-4369

5. Peanut Noodles at Yi Zhang - Also for $2 is a plate of good German egg noodles inundated with a thick peanut sauce. This utterly satisfying dish is found, not in a Yorkville German restaurant, but at a cheap Fujianese joint on the edges of Chinatown. If you still have the heart of a kid, the peanut butter noodles are so for you. 9 Eldridge Street, 212-961-6151

Would have liked to see a little more variety in this list. Most of the restaurants you've featured are Asian cuisine.
