Most people believe that living in New York is a living dream. With all those expensive stores and restaurants, others may say that you basically have to work for a decade in order for you to survive in New York for a week. But in reality, the Big Apple has many spots for slurp-and-bite-worthy dishes that are actually budget-friendly. Here are five of the best cheap eats in NYC that would not cost too much of your money.

Los Tacos No. 1

Who would have thought that at the back of the massive Chelsea Market lies the best tasting yet budget-friendly authentic Mexican tacos and quesadillas in New York City? The luscious, handmade corn or flour tortillas goes perfectly with the perfectly seasoned meats of your choice and is spiced depending upon the level that you want. With less than $4 per taco, every bite of the house-specialty, carne asada, will definitely be worth all the wait.

Lam Zhou Handmade Noodle

For only $6, you can already satisfy your cravings for the authentic Chinese noodles and dumplings at the Lam Zhou Handmade Noodle. The originally hand-pulled noodles is bathed with the aromatic, spiced and flavorful broth. But above anything else, what places Lam Zhou Handmade Noodle among the most popular cheap eat spot in the Big Apple is its perfectly made dumplings that are seasoned to perfection, Refinery29 says. The flavors and texture of the dumplings are basically spot-on and the cost of every meal that you will order is cheaper than you ever imagined.

The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys is not your typical classy and cozy restaurant with all the dressed servers and fancy chandeliers. It is just your ordinary food cart that lies along the streets of Manhattan. But mind you, Manhattan will never be Manhattan without these place.

For over 27 years, The Halal Guys has been serving the best chicken platter and gyro meat over rice in NYC, This food cart franchise has already spread the best halal food in New York with over 18 stores all over America and even in South Korea. Many customers of The Halal Guys have actually considered the menu of this franchise as the "Best Meal They Have Ever Eaten", TripAdvisor says.

Buffalo's Famous

What is New York without the Buffalo wings? Are there Americans who would have hated eating chicken wings? Satisfy your craving for the best Buffalo wings without spending all the money you have in your pockets.

Buffalo's Famous in Brooklyn, New York is known for serving the best and cheapest Buffalo wings and burgers in the locale. Buffalo's Famous also serves some of the best roast beef sandwiches, hotdogs and even ice creams. The store stays up late until 11pm from Monday to Thursday and until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Joe's Pizza

Of course, if there is something that you must eat in New York, it is definitely the meat pies. And if you in hunt for the best New York-style pizzas but you do not have all the budget in the world to go on the expensive pizzerias, the epitomic Joe's Pizza is practically the best place for you.

For only $3, you can already indulge yourself in the freshly baked slice of pizza that is topped with the house-specialty tomato or marinara sauce and mozzarella or Romano cheeses. Whether you are going solo or with your family, Joe's Pizza is definitely one of the cheap eats that you must visit. Pay less without compromising the quality of every slice of meat pies that you will order.
