    Sookk is phenomenal, would be packed 24/7 if it was closer to Columbia. As it stands now I can only travel there in the summer though.

    $5 basic staple days at Deluxe though are the opposite of cheap and affordable, don't fall for their lies Bwog

  4. is this how you roll in flavor town?  

    -$5 dumplings at the chinese food cart on 116th & broadway
    -Lunch special at Amir's (Falafel, 1 side, 1 soda)
    -Roti Roll

    $1 empanadas (beef, chicken, or three cheese) on Wednesdays from 4-7 at Havana Central

    it's all about the Amir's lunch special. $6 gets you a felafel, a great side (get the mujadra) and a bottomless drink. It's perfect.

    When Maoz allowed unlimited toppings, it was a pretty good deal (despite the issue of tongs grazing people's partly-eaten food as they repeatedly refill their pitas), but now they only let you get toppings once and it's really not worth the walk/extra money over cart falafel.

    Stop trying to make a Milano's boycott a thing.
