My favorite bargain bite of the moment has to be Bimbamboo‘s pot stickers.

Five bucks buys three of the casual Asian spot’s dumplings stuffed with delicate pan-seared shrimp, leeks, and a zing of fresh mint. The apps taste light and fresh–and are made even better when dunked in the accompanying ponzu-ginger sauce.

Order with a super-caffeinated Vietnamese iced coffee for a quick and inexpensive lunch.
