After hours of shaking it at the Mermaid Parade on little food, I got my starved self out of Coney Island and back to my 'hood. Budget and hunger align perfectly at Punjabi on 1st street. I feel the need to mention it because it doesn't seem to come up very often in discussions of where to eat while visiting NYC. And who isn't on a budget? Yes, it's standing only and the food is nuked and served in styrofoam--which is a detractor. But $3 buys a lot of food, and $5 buys so much that I couldn't inhale it all as quickly as I wanted to. Plus it's spicy and delicious.

It's known as a cabbie stop, but the street parking out front is gone during road construction. So maybe the friendly proprietors need some extra love from pedestrians and cyclists while the street is being torn up outside.

my vegan friend was telling me about this place and although I've passed it, I didn't remember looking too much at it because I couldn't tell it was veg, so I didn't believe him. i'm glad to hear they have cheap food so late, it's great for those of us who only get to the city past midnight!

I used to eat their pretty frequently when I worked on the LES. It's pretty good! I don't remember everything I got but I think I typically got channa masalla and a yellow dal and they were good, especially for the money.

It's steam tray style, just ask which dishes are vegan and they will tell you. I had spinach, and um, 2 other things. All good! I think the dishes will vary slightly depending on which day you go. Spicy, but that didn't stop me from adding more heat.
