Eats: Cheap lunch

  • White Duck Taco Shop makes a great taco at a great value. For a few dollars, the Thai peanut chicken taco or the Bangkok shrimp taco can be yours. But do you really want to make it a “cheap lunch” when you could add a taco with roasted duck confit and mole, a side of watermelon with mint, a bowl of cowboy beans, a slice of coconut macaroon pie and a housemade margarita? Skip the cheap lunch if you can. Go for the big spread. — E.P.
