Yamo is one of our favorite affordable lunch spots in the city, with nothing on the menu that costs more than $6.50. Not only that, you really only need to order two things from this tiny Cambodian counter spot: the Yamo house noodles with crispy garlic and cilantro, and pork, chicken, beef, or tofu, and the tea leaf salad that’s insanely spicy, but has a slow burn that won’t fully kick in for a few minutes after your first bite. This place doesn’t take cards, so make sure to bring some cash.
