Bits & Pieces (Midtown West Edition): Free Toppings at Go Go Curry, Piece of Chicken Raises Prices and more
Normally they give away free topping coupons the day after Hideki Matsui hits a homerun, but why should we be punished because it is the Yankees’ offseason? Problem solved. Today is free topping coupon day at Go Go Curry on 38th St. btw. 7+8th.
The new House of Pita on 8th Ave. btw. 39+40th finally replaced the Mandler’s Sausage sign. They smartly decided to keep the H.O.P. name, and only add the “Chicken Bar” part to the sign underneath. I guess they “discovered” that Chicken Bar already exists.
Kashmir Express, the Indian take out place on 8th Ave. btw. 38+39th, has converted to a by the pound buffet. Looked pretty good, although having to pay for my lunch by the amount it weighs is always a scary proposition. The $4.99 price tag is not bad, but Indian food can get heavy! And it forces you to break the #1 rule of eating at buffets by the pound… go easy on the rice and bread.
A shot of the buffet, plus Piece of Chicken’s shocking new menu changes, after the jump…
The New Inside of Kashmir Express
Not into the by the lb. buffets? There is always the $9.95 Kashmir all you can eat buffet, in the proper restaurant next door (down the stairs).
Saw this sad sign hanging in “Out of Bounds”, Midtown Lunch favorite “Piece of Chicken” on 45th btw. 8+9th.
“Due to the price increase of milk, eggs, cheese and butter, we have to raise the price of Macaroni & Cheese to $3.00. Sorry.”
Sorry indeed. The chicken and waffles is now $3 as well (although that seems a little more worth it. I mean you’re getting a piece of fried chicken AND a waffle. Is there anything better?) They make up for it a little by adding a whole bunch of new $2 options, including Bread Pudding, Spicy Jezebel Herbed Tea (from the original restaurant whose kitchen they now occupy), honey chicken, smothered chicken and Jamaican jerk chicken. And of course each piece of fried chicken is still a buck. They also have an entrance now, so you don’t have to wait in line in the freezing cold for your food to be put together.
