Moving to Fleetwood Mt. Vernon

Hello all lower Westchester Hounds.

I am moving in two weeks to Fleetwood and am wondering about mainly low-end every day fare. Specifically:

Delivery Pizza/Italian
Sandwiches Subs
Falafel (I know this may be a bit much to ask)

I am also wondering about shopping for more exotic items such as:

Cheese (Cabrales or Valdeon especially) I know I may have to go to Bronxville (is the Food Emporium any good?). Or is there some place better.

Also looking for

Palacio Chorizo
Andouille (D'artagnan or some other brand)

Any good local Brazilian or Portuguese groceries for beans, sausages etc.

What about that carribean Roti place (I saw it mentioned years ago).

I have heard the Cajun Place is good (I love new orleans food and am not expecting it to be as good as Coops in N'awlins....but is it at least OK? Esp. Gumbo, Jambalaya, Po Boyz),

Does that Galitos restaurant still exist. Years ago someone said it was the best food they had outside Newark.

I was also wondering about Lusiadas. I asked before but got no reply. The menu looks interesting because although I know there is a brasilian restaurant right in the center of Fleetwood, I am not as into the whole Churrascuria thing as much as beans, rice and stews....and they have a whole Roast Pig on Sundays. It seems like a Don Pepes kind of vibe (i.e. big and family style)

Are there any other places that are particularly good low key food where they show the Futbol on the tele. Doesn't have to be fancy....just a fun Brasilian sort of party vibe?

Sounds like Mt. Vernon is becoming somewhat like Newark. This is a prospect that exites me to no end.

I am much more excited by hole in the wall finds that expensive dining.

Thanks for any and all replies.
