Spicy Ribs on Van Brunt St.

I just had some very tasty and spicy beef ribs at non-descript hole in the wall joint called 327 V-B Cafe Deli at 327 Van Brunt Street off the corner of Sullivan in Red Hook. The ribs were meaty and juicy without having too much fat covered in a spicy (as in hot/peppery) green sauce that has very little salt and a decent amount of fresh cilantro.

it's a hot plate place where workers head for lunch. The other items such as the spaghetti, stewed chicken, brisket, etc, looked like standard fare but so did the ribs and there is nothing standard about them. If anyone tried the other items let me know how they are.

The place is deceiving. in fact I thought it was an abandoned store front save the neon "Deli" sign in the huge, fogged up glass plate windows. So look for it.
