One of the main tenets of Fucked in Park Slope is that we're all, essentially, fucked in Park Slope because it's so expensive to live here but we all love it and can't leave.
And sure, the rents are expensive, but it's also kind of expensive to feed yourself around here as well. $32 steak at Benchmark? Totally worth it, but not justifiable on my "Hi, I work in media" salary.
But there are some decent cheap eats around here too, as evidenced by Time Out New York's Cheap Eats issue. The Dram Shop got a shout-out for being one of the "Best Budget Burgers" and Bark Hot Dogs scored a mention as one of the best "Affordable Green Treats."
Where's your favorite place to stuff your face with quality food on the cheap? I'm gonna say Rachel's burritos—$8 for a burrito the size of your arm. For that price, I can almost forgive that their service is terrible.
