RIBS?! But I just ate Cuban food! MORE DELICIOUS FREE FOOD NO! Sophie's choice.

So we agreed upon Sophie's Cuban Cuisine for lunch today.. AWESOME!
An easily accessible restaurant (when it isn't covered by scaffolding), and you have the option of dining in the park. PICNIC!

We agreed on something not too heavy, but less than $10. How about Cuban sopa (soup) and some Moro rice?! Or even cheaper of an option, soup, an empanada and some sweet plantains!

This CAN be an inexpensive lunch when you plan accordingly.

Choose wisely, we spent about $7 - $8 each.
Maryam: beef soup $3.50, Rice&Beans $4.25
Olivia: chicken soup $3.50, Sweet plantains, $1.00, Beef empanada $1.50
Plus tax.
And a free cup of water from the Shake Shack.

The soup was YUUUM
but that empanada YUUUUUUUUUM
The rice... with the salsa verde (green hot sauce), great combo. YUUUUUUUUUUM

But oh when it's cold outside.. try the pernil (pork), stew chicken, skirt steak or roasted chicken.

BUT WAIT... there's more...
So you know that moment when you've finally settled on spending close to $10 on lunch when you probably shouldn't have. But you were STARVING so you just did it.

How about that feeling that you get when you realized you just spent your last but then you discover the FREE food in your office building celebrating somebody's something. That's right...

RIBS... Ribs and chicken. Ribs, chicken and cake. After Sophie's. Maryam says ribs were big ol' Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum, which makes us wonder....should we go in search of the best ribs???? To be continued...



Later that evening ..
Little Poland was visited.. and more food was devoured.
