Editorial Review of Dong Ky

So the location is weird, the prices are questionably low and, admit it, the name gives you the giggles; but forget all that and give Dong Ky a try. It's unbelievably fresh, delicious, and oh yes, cheap as heck. Located practically inside the Broadway Supermarket (same entrance and everything), Dong Ky's Vietnam/Chinese restaurant is just a bunch of tables thrown into a small room. But open your menu and drool over the tasty dishes and rock-bottom prices. The soups, orange chicken and the complimentary hot tea are particularly good.

Veggie lovers will go crazy over the tofu crepe, which is awesomely huge and filled with broccoli, bean sprouts and tofu, served with a syrup-like sauce. Or go crazy over the huge variety of appetizers, fried rice, chop suey, house specialties, bubble teas and noodle, vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes. Low cost aside, the best thing about Dong Ky is the unbelievable freshness, which could have something to do with its in-grocery-store locale.

Average cost: <$10

Everything you'd expect from a station with a red pagoda.

Every trip brings with it the chance for a new food addiction, but you don't have to leave the city to get hooked.
