OK, I broke down and bought a small Pinkberry's yogurt with NO toppings for $4.
Was it worth it?
Hell, no. The yogurt had a sour taste and made my stomach bloat.
But I did find some good eats down the block.
Waiting for me on the corner of 14th street and 8th avenue was a Mexican food truck. Honey, the $2 tacos were heaven on earth and very authentic - corn tortillas loaded with chicken and laced with lime juice, sliced radishes and pickled peppers.
As I gobbled up my taco, I was suddenly surrounded by a group of Mexican hip-hop skateboarders. The hipster kids ordered their tacos and started break dancing while they waited for their eats.
It was 1 AM and I was being entertained by a group of ghetto fabulous Mexican kids while enjoying the best $2 taco in town.
Only in New York, kids.
