LUNCH TIME – A Ghetto Lunch (yeah, I said it)
I call this my ghetto lunch. A bodega $6 sub, some chips and a vitamin water – takes me back to my days as a youngin’ growing up on streets of Washington DC!
As someone who grew up with bodegas, it’s not uncommon for me to stop by one for a quick bite to eat – although I definitely pick and choose my bites carefully! As a Harlemnite, I frequent the Lenox U.S. Deli on 127th & Lenox! It’s relatively clean, the prices are great, and the guys who run it are easy-going and friendly.
I ordered the steak and cheese, I had them toast my bread and grill some onions. I asked for them to put lettuce, tomatoes, salt & pepper, mayo, ketchup and hot peppers on it. The Deep River kettle cooked potato chips are one of my favorite brands! Crisp whole chips with great flavors really make this brand stand out from the rest and the quality chips really help shape this meal!
Here’s another angle for you viewing pleasure!
Do you go to Bodegas for more than your average sundries? What do you usually order? And have you visited Lenox US Deli? Thoughts?
