I stopped at the Papaya King for a dog yesterday - I hadn't had lunch, I didn't want to sit down, and I needed something quick. Manhattan's answer to fast food is Papaya King. Now, when I was a kid, we'd stop at a hot dog stand after being out on the boat. 3 hotdogs for buck! Papaya King isn't quite that cheap, but $1.90 for lunch in Manhattan - can't beat it.
While I was chowing down in the standing room only dining area, I read about how this location is one of Anthony Bourdain's top 10 places in NYC. I can see why - they really are the best dogs in town.
