I walked by this place one day. I think it’s sort of new in the East Williamsburg area –A.K.A. Bar Restaurant. It looks more like a bar in there. They got a full bar up with some top shelf liquor. I saw a sign for $3 beer and $5 lunch special.
It’s weird. The printed menu is mostly stuff like Tacos, Burritos and Burgers …I think to pull in the white people. But dang, I really feel like they should focus on the stuff not on the menu …the stuff that’s their lunch special –Roast Pork, Beef Stew, Roast Chicken. White people like that stuff.
$5 lunch special with rice and beans. I remember when Latino places near my work would have $5 lunch specials, but now they’re more like $8. I guess it makes sense that this is $5 though, since it’s not near my work.
I ordered the Roast Pork. Pretty good stuff. Although, it was sliced more like ham than what I usually think of as Roast Pork –stringy, pulled apart meat. Still pretty good. I really liked the rice and beans and the hot sauce.
$5 a pretty good deal. $3 Bud, cool.
