Strapped for cash? We're serving up a fresh platter of five restaurants where you can eat for under $10. Check out dozens of other suggestions in our Cheap Eat of the Day archives.

White Bear, 135-02 Roosevelt Avenue, Queens, 718-961-2322
White Bear makes our favorite wontons in the city -- the pork-stuffed pouches come pooled in chili oil and covered in drifts of Szechuan peppercorns -- they're spicy, pungent, and utterly addicting, even if you think you're already full. Get 10 of them for a measly $4. -- Laura Shunk

Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, 514 Union Street, Brooklyn
Okay, so Royal Palms doesn't actually have a kitchen. But the enterprising owners converted a loading dock into a food cart window, and each night, you'll find one of the city's best mobile vendors doling out wares for a song. Drinks and rounds of shuffleboard are also affordable, which means you can have what'll feel like a big night out and come away without doing too much damage to your bank account. -- Laura Shunk
