Top Greenwich Village Food Pick-Up/Delivering Food during Corona Pandemic

Mamoun's Falafel
Founded in 1971, Mamoun's has long been one of the best spots in all of New York 
to get great "Cheap Eats." At just $4 for a falafel that for most is easily enough to fill you up at lunch, an in-between meal or even dinner. And as far as Great Late Night Cheap Eats, Mamoun's just can't be beat. I like get a Falafale-Baba (Babaganoush) Combo, at $5 it a inexpensive, fast, tasty meal that I can get anytime I like, as my apartment building is a short two blocks away.
PS ... Mamoun's claims to be the First Place Ever to serve Falafel Sandwiches in New York. We beleive this to be trued, and even if it's not, they are easily the most famous Falafel Joint in the entire city. No contest!
Joe's Pizza
Along with Mamoun's. Joe's Pizza on Carmine Street is another Top List # 1 in all of New York City. Joe's is well known as New York's #1 favorite "Best Slice" (Pizza) in all of New York. And in a town that's known as the undisputed Best Pizza in all of America, and is considered one of the Best Places on God's Good Earth to get a Slice of Pizza, being known as The Best Slice Joint in the great City of New York is no small feat. 
Yes  Joe's is a great Cheap Eat and one of the best deals in the city, with a slice going for $3 and two for $6, it's easily in the parameters of what is considered a "Cheap Eat," any meal that cost Ten Dollars or less, Joe's does the trick and you're cheap cheezy 2nd rate product, you're getting what most people consider the best (not me) in the whole city.
Footnotes :
1)   Speaking of Cheezy, I've got to mention the .99 Cent Slice of Pizza. There are a couple within two blocks of Joe's. There's one north on 6th Avenue. A slice of Pizza for .99 cents. It uses cheap "Cheezy" Cheese. Hey it's just a Buck, and for many two slices of Pizza for $6 is a bit dear, so these .99 cent slice joints do serve their purpose, and that's to feed the less fortunate who can't afford the 6 Dollars it would cost to get 2 slices of pizza, they get two for just $2, and for them it makes a Huge Difference. Basta!
2 )   If you notice that when I wrote that, "Most people consider Joe's the Best Slice in the city (not Me), that is how I feel. It's not that I don't think they're not good, they are. It's just that I feel that the pizza at Joe's is very good, even one of the Best, just that it's not the # 1 single best, there are others. Joe's pizza is very good, a bit over-rated, and definitely not the single best slice in New York. There are many others just as equally excellent as Joe's. Basta.
Faicco's Pork Store
Great Italian Hero Sandwiches and Meatball Parms. A bit expensive, but definitely worth it if you have the cash, I don't. I could, but I make such great food for far less money, so I'm not going to throw $14 away on a single sandwich, when I can make four sandwiches for the same $14, and it would cost me about $60 to get four sandwiches at Faicco's. Now don't get me wrong I love the place. I love buying my  fresh Italian Sausage from them, along with Sopresseta and other Salumi products, tomatoes, pasta, olive oil, and cheese, but I make it myself at home, unlike many others for whom $14 for a sandwich is no problem, Faicco's is great. They make one of the best Italian Sandwiches (along with Parisi's) in all of New York City.

Meaning of Saint Valentines Day


Screenshot 2020-02-14 at 1.27.16 PM

"Be My Valentine"


Valentine's Day (or Saint Valentine's Day) is observed on February 14 each year. Today Valentine's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, mostly in the West, although it remains a working day in all of them. The original "St. Valentine" was just a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saint named Valentinus. All the modern romantic connotations were added several centuries later by poets. The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

The BEST Veggie Burger Ever

Screenshot 2020-02-04 at 4.30.31 PM
I LOVE Em !!! Dam? They are so Dam Good. 1st Off, I'm Not a Vegetarian, but about 8 years ago I started eating a lot less meat and more Veggies, and usually go 3 to 4 days a week Meatless. I was looking for a tasty Veggie Burger that I would LIKE and the 1st one I tried ( Quninoa Cowboy Veggie Burger by TRADER JOES) and it was literally LOVE at 1st BITE. "I just couldn't believe How Dam Tasty this Veggie Burger is. A week later I tried the Trader Joe's Masala Burger, it's not that good. The Quinoa Cowboy Burger has the Masala Veg Burger BEST by 1,00 times and I don't recommend the Masala Burger at all. I pan fry my Quinoa Cowboy Burger in a little Olive Oil on both sides, put it on a Toasted Buttered English Muffin with a little Mustard, Mayo, & Ketchup, Cheddar Cheese and 4 slices of Dill Pickle. It's so dam Tasty and I LOVE it so much, I can't stop eating them . PS I don't like the Trader Joe's English muffins, I'm sad tos ay, they're not that good. I use another brand. But I do LOVE most things I try at TRADER JOE'S. GREAT Company.
