There aren't a whole lotta meals in NYC for under $5, but this is one of the city's tastiest bargains. IIt isn't gourmet, but it is good for a quick snack or meal. Even Rachel Ray visits Papaya King! I'm a plain hot dog gal, but they have sauerkraut, chili, onions, plus all the usual toppings and condiments. My favorite drink is the Banana Daquiri -- I know it's loaded with sugar, but I can taste the banana. Mango and papaya drinks are good, too, but the banana is my personal favorite. For more money they will also make you a fresh made fruit smoothie to your specifications. This particular branch is very near the subway stop. (avoid the Harlem Gray's Papaya). If you're going to the museums on 5th Ave., this is not much of a walk away.
