- Oh my, I love this joint.
The #17 (veggie curry chicken) is the winner. Super cheap, totally awesome. Get it with the hot sauce AND the fresh chilies. It will treat you right.

- I got a vegan lemongrass chicken sandwich and it was a DELICIOUS and very very cheap, huge sandwich. I love this place I can't wait to go back. There's no seating so you'll have to find a stoop but it is still a great place to go for lunch. Unfortunately they close at 7:30
Review by Red Lurcher on September 14, 2007:
- My sandwich was delicious, the service was friendly (though not especially English-speaking), and it's a cheap, filling deal. Highly recommended!
The fake chicken (at least when I was there) was tofu, rather than the wheat gluten stuff you might expect.
One weird note: the vegan sandwich was listed as "with mayonnaise." I was unable to find out if this was vegan mayonnaise (see "not especially English-speaking") but it was no problem to order it with no mayo. And it was delicious, so I didn't feel like I was missing anything.
