If you work in NE, you’re lucky. You can get a cheap but delicious lunch at the newly renovated ethnic food store, Maria Market (42-2770 32 Avenue NE). And by cheap, I mean soup $2.50 and a cooked meal $5.99… Now, I dare you to find a better deal than this… The only drawback is that once word gets spread about this place, it won’t be long until it will be packed for lunch. You can only take lunch with you, but you should probably be there a bit early if you want to eat in.
We ate there during the weekend, and it was very relaxed. For a party of two, we paid $20 for: 1x meatball soup with a slice of bread, 2x chicken with cream sauce and polenta, 2x tomato salad, 2x small coke bottles (the best coke ever if you ask me). All food is cooked that day and the lunch menu changes daily.
