There are so many great lunch deals in this City and I feel as if a large concentration of those can be found in or near Chinatown. I met up with two of my cousins last week at Malaysian restaurant Nyonya (199 Grand Street, Bet Mott & Mulberry Sts) and found one that's new to me.

Nyonya has a lunch special menu with 16 dishes all including a soup appetizer and costing only $6.50. I had the Beef Masak Lemak over rice, which was this delicious dish chock full of flavor from peppers, onions, chilies, garlic, and ginger. The Roti Canai appetizer (Indian pancake) with curry chicken dipping sauce is a must have and a bargain at $3.50. The noodle dishes are also great and all $7.50 or under at all times, not just for lunch.

My visit to Nyonya seems timely given the upcoming launch of the Malaysian Kitchen Food Truck (website), a marketing vehicle for NYC Malaysian restaurants including the aforementioned Nyonya and the well-known Fatty Crab.

The truck will treat New Yorkers to free samples of Malaysian dishes for six weeks starting October 11th. The truck will venture around Manhattan until November 6th and then grace the people of Queens with the Food truck gifts from November 8th to 19th.

Follow the Malaysia Kitchen Food Truck (@MalaysiaKitchn) on twitter for location updates or visit the web page I linked to above.

**Also, mark your calendars for this special kick off event.**

When: Tuesday, October 12th - 8am to 2pm
