Cheap Eat of the Week: Jimmy’s House

Written by Aurora Hinz with pictures by Sabine Smith

As college students in NYC, having a cheap food connoisseur is essential. We all want to save money, but why sacrifice a good meal? We’re here to let you know that you’ve got options! From deals to discounts, we’ve got you covered.

Now that the temperature of Manhattan is finally dropping, I think everyone can agree that all chilly November afternoons need two things: big sweaters and comfort food. Whenever I think of one of those soul-satisfying meals, the first thing that comes to mind is ramen. At Jimmy’s House, located a few blocks away from Madison Square Park, you can get a great portion of noodle soup AND a bubble tea for less than $13 per person. For a cheap-eats place well within the walking distance of FIT, it’s worth the trip.

During our visit, we got the vegetable noodle soup and vegetable dumplings. Sabine really enjoyed this find, but I was not as convinced. Although the price tag was very low (less than $25 including 15% tip) the atmosphere was kind of sad, and the soup was very starchy. I would rate the experience a 3/5, it wasn’t bad or very good either. For a quick meal on a cold night, it did the trick.  

Here are the facts:

Address: 220 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10011

Vegan/Vegetarian Options – YES, Sabine and I both got the vegetable noodle soup and vegetable dumplings!

Delivery Options? –  YES, call (212) 725 – 8170 for delivery.

Easy to Find? – YES, this restaurant is located right across from Baruch college with a large black awning.

Food Safety Grade – B, This was a little off-putting to me, because I usually only eat at establishments with A ratings.
