Since I moved to the city, it's been my mission to find an affordable/delicious restaurant for every type of food. Charlie Mom is my Chinese place, without question. I eat there at least once a month. Friends and I stumbled upon it after a night of drinking at the Cubbyhole, and it was just what we needed. The sesame chicken is extra-sauced, tangy, and incredible. Make sure you order the fried rice and the won ton egg drop soup. Also, hit up their M-F lunch special...the entrees (under $8) are guaranteed to fill you up and keep you happy all day. The service is polite and attentive. Because they seem to be primarily takeout-oriented, the dining room is never loud and the servers are never too busy to give you great service. The decor is pretty bad, but if you don't look too hard at the paintings, the exposed brick walls are enough to give you some ambience.
