NYC ON A BUDGET: Restaurants & Bars starting at $1.85
If you're visiting New York City and you're on a budget then this video is
for you! Today I'm going to show you the best
restaurants and bars where everything is $9 or under and they're rated
4 out of 5 stars with over a hundred and fifty reviews.
Join me as I show you the best budget restaurants and bars here in New York. Let's start!
I'm here at Rudy's, an iconic New York City dive bar and one of the first
speakeasies here in the city that's known for hosting guests such as Al
Capone, Drew Barrymore, and many other famous celebrities. This place is a
celebrity hideout to today and what I love about this place is that is
extremely and reasonably priced. You can get a beer for $3 and with every drink
here at Rudy's you get a free hot dog. It's a great place to come if you're
looking for a cheap meal. $3 literally you get a beer and a hot dog. I think
that's probably the best deal you can find here in New York. If you know the
better one please comment below because I want to know about it.
For this one I had to do a special guest this is my husband Luis.
We used to live here in Astoria, and when we lived here he found this place and
it is incredible. It's called Los Portales. The main reason why I really
like any food is because of its price point. You have other things like if the
quesadillas, tortas. But the main reason why I like it is because the tacos are so
delicious, really authentic, really fresh too. And that's really good reason to go
to anywhere. Let's go eat more tacos – and horchata!
Oh, horchata they have that too? Yea.
In case you didn't know, horchata is a drink made out of rice
and it's sweet and has cinnamon in it. It basically
tastes like cinnamon milk so if you like that kind of thing, you'll love this!
Oo here are my tacos!
I got my pork taco here, got some hot sauce on it, got some cilantro sauce
Taste's just like Luis' mom's tacos.
That's what we're going to get right there. I can see it. It is slightly out of reach
because of the line but we're going to make it happen.
I'm here to Prince Street Pizza.
Now in my opinion this is the best pizza you're gonna get for under $10 and
honestly it's my favorite pizza. It's four dollars and fifty cents to slice,
which I realized is more expensive that dollar pizza but it's because the
quality is so much better so if you're gonna get a pizza you're looking for
something budget but something good go to Prince Street. Now a lot of people
will say oh my god how could you say Prince Street, Lombardi's is amazing and
all the other iconic pizza places. But guess what, Lombardi's doesn't sell
you a slice and Lombardi's pizza is like 18 dollars or something. So if you're on a
budget this is the pizza you get. Order the pepperoni. That is what I got going on
Let's take a bite.
As I remember it was. I went on a pizza tour of New York. I went to all of the
iconic pizza places. In my opinion this is the best now. If you are looking
for the cheapest, cheapest pizza and you don't necessarily care about quality –
which I don't really understand? There is dollar pizza here, that's a thing and
people love it. My friend Jen made a video on the best dollar pizza here in
New York. She goes to all of them and she'll tell you which one's the best.
If you're interested in the dollar pizza, which is cheaper than this one that's
for $4.50, then click the link in the video description below and I'm going to show
you that video there.
Here at Crocodile Lounge you can get a free pizza with
every drink you order. I mean talk about saving money in New York what better way
to do it than here. The drinks aren't that expensive and the pizzas delicious.
They also have games in the back, like ski ball and hunting games. Really great
place to save some money but also have a really good time in New York City.
I got my drink, which is happy hour price six dollars, and free pizza. That is such
a good deal.
I'm here at Kingston Hall and they have an another incredible
happy hour which is buy one get one free drinks from four to eight Monday through
Saturday and then Sunday it's all day long. The great thing about this place is
from the outside it doesn't look like much, but the inside is absolutely beautiful.
It's definitely a hidden spot here in New York. I just want to say before
we get into the happy hour deals, you know New York City's expensive. A cocktail scene,
the beer scene, the wine scene, it's expensive. If you want high quality
things you can't get it for a low price so I'm giving you happy hour deals
instead of giving you the cheap gross bars that I know you can get drinks for
super inexpensive but it's so terrible quality and I don't want to recommend
that. I'm recommending happy hour instead. Now let's go check out the
happy hour here at Kingston Hall. It's awesome. I'm excited. I hope you are too.
I just got my drink and they give me a little token so I can get my second
drink for free. But what I love most about this place is that it looks like
it's old Jamaican mansion inside which is truly –
it feels like you're stepping into a different time and destination. They have a pool table
and all of the – it's just really nicely decorated so definitely come here when
you're visiting because it's worth it. Cheers to that!
I'm here at Charlie Palmer Steak New York and they have an incredible happy
hour every day from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. You get half off drinks and these
are high quality cocktails. Normally these things are $16. You can get
them for $8.00, and it's also half off all of their snacks and small plates.
Really good prices, good quality food. The cocktails alone are worth coming for.
I'm here at Pao de Queijo. A cornerstone in the Astoria community that's been recognized by it's outstanding
Brazilian cuisine. This restaurant is known for its modern
interpretation of classic dishes and its insistence on using only high-quality fresh ingredients.
Now "Pao de Queijo" means cheese bread in Portuguese so I naturally got the cheese bread
here. But they're really known for their burgers and their
sandwiches. Everything is very well priced. Most of the stuff on the menu is under
$10. They have authentic Brazilian coffee, which I'm really a fan of. I had this exact type in Brazil. One of
the Iron Chefs visited this place Michael Symon. There's a picture up on the wall.
When you come here you know you're getting a good quality meal for a low
price and that is what this video is all about.
Here at El Sabroso you can get a huge
Latin-American meal for only seven dollars.
This restaurant is hidden inside of a truck loading dock, it looks a little
sketchy on the outside but trust me the food is delicious.
Let's go try some right now.
I just ordered the chicken stew. It's so much food!
Make sure you bring cash when you come here because they only accept cash.
But you can't get this much food for $7 anywhere in this area.
Mhmm. It's so good.
I'm here at Margon. This is a Cuban restaurant located in the Times Square area and they have delicious
Cuban sandwiches for only $9. They have other things on their menu that are less than that and the
breakfast menu starts at $2.50. Very authentic and very
My god. You got the crunchiness from the pickles, the cheesiness.
A great place to have a cheap meal if you're in the Times Square area. The other great thing
about this place is that they've been mentioned in the New York Times, the New York Post,
and tons of other prestigious publications and they've gotten tons of
awards. This is truly a hidden gem in New York, especially the fact that it's in
Times Square. Which is normally filled with terrible chain restaurants!
So come here instead of those chain restaurants when you're in this area.
