  • Cost: $10 with a drink
  • Inside Info: Since there’s not actually any Tabasco in it, the spice level is mild with a tiny kick. The deliciousness of this dish won’t floor you but it will keep your wallet full and your stomach happy.

    that looks like someone puked in a tin dude

    rice looks decent though…

    not sure how 10 bucks is a good deal for that….i’d rather get 10 hot dogs off a street vender and swallow them whole..


  2. The NYC Food Guy Says:


    You may be right but its still damn tasty. $10 for a filling meal is a deal in this city, have you tried to buy lunch in any of the business-centric hoods in Manhattan?

  3. creamme Says:

    im down for just about any lunch that includes a dollop of heavy cream

  5. Dr. Dyspepsia Says:

    Hold on a minute…Puke may be right. How much is a Papaya King dog? I confess, Doc Dyspepsia is an old mofo, who last time he ate one, a Papaya Dog was edible, and cost 99 cents. 10 bucks for a pukey Thai meal, or all the Papaya King dogs you can eat, and live? Hard one….

    CLASSIC last line right there….we’re sure you know allllll abouutttt “hard ones”….

  7. Dr. Dyspepsia Says:

    Oh my. I said “hard” on this web site. What a boner!

    But what about “puke”, who swallows them whole?

  8. The NYC Food Guy Says:


    Easy there man. You’re walking a thin line amidst my sometimes raunchy readers. Just know you walk that line alone.

    When are we doing Ben’s Best? Two weekends from now? Or should we just do a BK diner burger asap?

  9. phil Says:

    Hey – can i join for the bk diner burger? i LOVE them.

  10. Dr. Dyspepsia Says:

    Yes, Guy, I went overboard, and gave in to an easy setup. Thanks for reining me in.

    As for an excursion, let’s talk off-line, both look mighty good.


  11. phil Says:

    Can I join the two of you for a burger?

  12. The NYC Food Guy Says:


    Absolutely. Email me and we’ll go from there.
