If you’re one of the thousands of avid fans who read this blog religiously, you might recall that in the summer of 2008, Geoffrey and I took an urban field trip to the new Ikea in Redhook, Brooklyn, which opened that June, in order to provide residents of the NYC Metropolitan area with a warehouse-sized shopping facility at which to purchase cheap and interesting furniture and household accessories.
The above photo is the closest approximation I could find (via Google Images, always so helpful) of the delicious “chicken and lamb over rice, with salad” lunch I purchased today from the street cart on the corner of Wall and Pearl. A five dollar bill gets you all that and a can of soda (today it was “a nice Hawaiian Punch”). Jesus god, what a bargain. Street Meat!
