Chow for Cheap: Pho Hoa Binh



And now, I bring you the first in a series of weekly installments chronicling the city's best - and cheapest - food.

This one's no secret, at least not for Midtowners - every weekday finds Pho Hoa Binh's lunch buffet swarming with vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores alike. Though tastes may vary, what brings them to the same place at the same time is simple: consistently delicious, traditional Vietnamese and Chinese food, and the all-you-can-eat price tag, just $4.99.


Though I'm a big fan of the house special fried rice, I frequent the lunch buffet because it's a great way to try a variety of dishes without spoiling your dinner. Case in point:


Today I picked up this delicious mushroom-y tofu-y concoction, which I'd love to order again with beef (I'm a meat-eater, all the way). I asked the waitress what they called the dish, so I'd be able to find it on the dinner menu.
"Mushroom tofu," she informed me. Easy enough.
