A Taste of Fifth is a cheap eats paradise

Non-fried curry puff from Sky Ice, a newcomer to Taste of Fifth this year.

Park Slope, in all of its fancy pants glory, isn’t exactly a cheap-eats haven, but on Sept. 15th many of the restaurants on the neighborhood’s Fifth Avenue strip will become oh-so-briefly affordable (or more so!). A Taste of Fifth Ave, running from 6-8pm, allows those with multiple stomachs (you mean you don’t have one just for desserts?) to sample a variety of dishes spanning numerous cuisines. Each of the 18 participating restaurant will offer a $5 food or drink special, though the folks at the Fifth Avenue BID also hint that free samples are not out of the question.

Event sponsor Google Places will also be set up at Fifth and 1st Street to give out free food tickets, but only for the first 150 customers. Participating restaurants include everything from the much praised Northern Thai ice cream shop Sky Ice to M&S Prime Meats and its extensive selection of meat-y Italian treats (pork snack?). Check out the full details here  and start your plan of attack now!

El Viejo Yayo – 36 5th Avenue
Sky Ice – 63 5th Avenue
