Lunch tends to be a tricky meal if you work full-time, and really want to avoid the lines and burgers Mickey D's.
You could bring lunch, but its more rewarding to know you can afford lunch. I recently discovered A-Pou's Dumpling cart.
With 4 dumpling options to chose from you really can't go wrong. There's Taiwanese Style Pork, Hong Kong Style Chicken, Kimchi Beef, and Vegetarian. What's got me hooked is that they advertise using no MSG in their food, and it's pretty authentic when it comes to potstickers - right down to crispy skin). The next closet thing is making them yourself from scratch.

You can have it with noodles or just order a whole bunch of dumplings. And between $5-$9 you get your money's worth.
