Cheap Eats 2018: A&J

Photograph by Scott Suchman.

There are no carts at these dim sum houses, but we’ll trade the ease of a point-and-order system for fresh dishes that emerge hot from the kitchen. Tick off items on paper—they’ll come quickly, so order in batches. We feasted on spicy wontons, dan-dan noodles, and egg-stuffed pastries. It’s hard to go wrong, unless you arrive cashless. (Credit cards aren’t taken.) Also good: pork dumplings; Spicy beef noodle soup; scallion pancakes; fried chicken.
