Fork in the Road’s Favorite Under $5 Dishes


It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Under-$5 Dishes.

“Tacos from the El Idolo truck, especially the tongue with plenty of green sauce, which has revived me on many late evenings.” –Robert Sietsema

“The pork fried dumplings at Prosperity Dumpling. Five for one dollar — you can’t beat that!” –Lauren Shockey

“Pinche’s fish taco.” –Chantal Martineau
