What started as a popular food cart in the East Village 10 years ago is now a nondescript, to-the-point Taiwanese spot known for its amazing value and generous service. Regulars are fiercely protective of the owner, affectionately known as A-pou (granny), who’ll give you the same attention and care she gives her signature potstickers.

The handmade potstickers are juicy without being greasy, and the best special in the house involves 10 of them lined up over thin lo mein noodles. You can also get generous portions of Taiwanese standards—like braised pork over rice—as well as some $6 lunch specials. But the real steal is breakfast. The Taiwanese egg sandwiches and fan tuan are great when you're sick of BECs but still want something handheld under $5. Be sure to get here early⁠. The shop opens at 7am, and the breakfast items sell out by late morning.
