There are times in a foreign country when you want to test the culinary prowess of a culture that has a thousand years of history behind it. And there are times when you just want to "tie on the feed bag."
If you want authentic, down-home grub and you don't want to be over-charged, follow the cab drivers. If you you see five or so cabs parked in front of a restaurant, you've found a cheap, filling, honest meal, sans garnish, with refills on the crank du-jour and plenty of local color.
