The Best Cheap Lunch in NYC’s Chelsea || Operation $5 Lunch – NYC Video



Chelsea has a lot of great restaurants hidden within its streets, but one particular place is famous to anyone who frequents this NYC neighborhood — The Chelsea Market. On this episode of Operation $5 Lunch, Prez takes us to Los Tacos No. 1, located inside the market to get a taste of authentic Mexican flavors for under $5. From tacos to quesadillas, this restaurant has some of the best Mexican food in New York City.

  3. Should a food show really be referencing human centipede? That’ll put you right off any food.

  10. I love these episodes, but it bothers me that in the intro you claim to be "the $5 lunch guy", yet in all but one of these so far you have asked Khushbu where to go eat. Otherwise, love watching it.
