At Lunch Now: Free Food Craziness at Sophie’s Cuban (Updated)
You didn’t think a little rain would keep us cheapos away, did you? It’s 12:01 and the line is already stretched down the block at the newly opened Sophie’s Cuban on 40th btw. 7+8th… but it moves quickly. And they even have oxtails.The inside crowd, what I got, plus the ultimate Sophie’s surprise (for anybody who didn’t take their food to go), after the jump…
12:10 – Didn’t take too long to get into the restaurant
12:17 – Sitting in the top balcony eating my food. Not a bad wait at all. I’ve had almost everything else on the menu, so I went with the fish. My favorite part was the sticker on the container that made it clear these were “sample” size portions. Let that sink in. They are saying the normal portions are larger than the massive amount of food you see in the container above… and then the greatest thing of all time happened:
A guy started walking around the balcony with a tray full of fried pork skin. Um… are you shitting me? Did I just die and go to some sort of free food heaven?
