Frugal Floozie Friday - Luca's Coney Island
It's still Chanukkah until Sunday, which means we're continuing to celebrate the miracle of the oil by eating fried foods, particularly the classic potato pancakes. So, what better feature for a Frugal Floozie Friday than Luca's Coney Island, where you can find these on a menu that offers many great deals?
My friend Beth has repeatedly recommended Luca's Coney Island for this generous serving that costs only $3.99. Crispy, fried potatoes are one of the great comfort foods. And since this dish costs less than the mandatory budget of $5 per person, it's an ideal option.
Appetizers range from a mere $2.69 for chili fries to $4.99 for saganaki "flamed at your table." Soups, burgers (even a quarter pound chili burger), and a wide variety of breakfast options meet our frugal standards, as well.
Even many of the hearty sandwiches can satisfy for an investment of less than $5: varieties featuring fried chicken, tuna, breaded fish, turkey, eggs with a choice of meat, bacon, and cheese all qualify. There is something for every appetite.
And don't forget desserts, ranging from fruit and cream pies to milk shakes, as well as ice cream sundaes - all cost less than $5. And the Hot Fudge Brownie Delight - "a rich fudge brownie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, smothered with hot fudge, swirled with whipped cream and topped with a cherry" - will set you back only $3.99.
So stop by Luca's for friendly service, very reasonable prices, and good value.
