Well folks, I’ve been outdone. No longer are my $5 Lincoln Lunches, named for the dead man on that bill, the gold standard for cheap eats.
Introducing…3 Buck Bites. The idea behind the site is as tasty as its appearance. Eaters share pictures of their cheap finds, write 60-100 words on the grub, and share details about where others can find the meal. If only I’d thought of that!
The pictures are truly one of the best things about 3 Buck Bites. If you are nearing lunchtime, consider yourself warned. You WILL lick your computer screen clean.
The featured “bites” are constantly changing and come from around the country: Philly, Orlando, Minneapolis. Here is the start of a review of a $3.95 cup (items up to $3.99 are allowed) of Banana Chocolate Chip Gelato from Twelve Pine in Peterborough, NH.
“Bananas make for such delicious dessert bed mates – banana sundaes, banana bread, bananas foster, and banana gelato, one of the more traditional flavors of this Italian sweet,” the reviewer writes. “To me, gelato versus ice cream is like cream versus milk in coffee – if there is no gelato around, I will have ice cream, but will always prefer the former.”
My stomach is already grumbling. Check out 3BuckBites for more!
