If you’re looking for something cheap, simple, quick, and all around good, Rooster & Rice is a solid go-to. Lunch here will run you about $12, but you'll get twice as much food as pretty much anywhere else around Union Square for the price. All you really need here is the original, which gets you poached chicken, rice, cucumber, and a side of chicken broth. The habanero sauce you can get at the counter is good, but it’s nothing compared to the ginger, garlic, and soybean sauce that comes with your box.
