Sure, you can grab a hot dog or slice of pizza in New York for cheap, but a balanced meal for $10 or less? In Manhattan? That's the idea behind the new site CheapEatery.com.

At first it seemed too good to be true. When Daniel Lyu, a former producer for The Food Network, told me about launching CheapEatery as a database ranking and profiling affordable restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn, we had to put him to the test. Can you get a balanced meal for $10 or less in the city that boasts some of the world's most expensive restaurants?To up the challenge, Walletpop recruited a trio of food testers, all former staffers of Gourmet Magazine, once the pinnacle of the art of good eating. Check out the video for the conclusion of Walletpop's CheapEatery.com Challenge.
