K Food Pizza adds $5.50 Latin Buffet
As much as I love a cheap meal, I haven’t really been able to get behind the 99 cent pizza trend, which is why back in February, it was Brownie who hopped the subway to try the dollar slice at K Food Pizza (on 33rd btw. Mad+5th) even though I work a block away. This pizza joint, located on the site of the old Golden Krust, has been churning out dollar slices ever since and it hasn’t once tempted me to walk in the doors. That is, until I saw the sign advertising a Latin Food Buffet for $5.50!
For the price and the place, my expectations weren’t particularly high, so it wasn’t so surprising that the buffet wasn’t all you can eat. It’s a steam table behind glass and you select which of the four options you would like. For $5.50, you get one choice of meat and a side of rice and beans.
There are about four meat options which include fried fish filets, beefsteak in sauce, chicken with sauteed vegetables and roasted chicken leg/thigh quarters, below.
Outside of wishing they had provided some hot sauce, the chicken was perfectly acceptable. Not earth-shattering, but not significantly worse than Tina’s down the block and for a couple bucks less, it makes a good alternative if your standards aren’t too high.
