Grew up in Brooklyn, but now living in Yonkers, and trying to find the cheap, diverse eateries I could seemingly trip over in NYC. And Yonkers is a pretty diverse city, especially in the south. But I've found the pickings to be rather slim. Here's what I've found so far:
Ya Hala (326 South Broadway): Pretty good Lebanese/Middle Eastern food, and cheap, although I've had better stuff at 20 different places in NYC. Also been to Fakhouri on Nepperhan Avenue - their sandwich bar in the back rarely seems to be open.
Yonkers Miasarnia (34 Lockwood Avenue): Polish deli/food store. Tried their homemade meat/cabbage pierogies, which were good, if a bit greasy.
Tacos El Poblano (122 Nepperhan Avenue): For greasy, tasty Pueblan food, this is the place. Excellent tacos. The fact that it's open until 2 a.m. is a plus - I work nights.
Any other good options out there? I'm up for just about anything.
