Good & Cheap in Harlem/Washington Heights
I used to live in Washington Heights, and I still work in the area. Near 155th, Wilson's on Amsterdam and 158, excellent Southern Cooking. El Paso on B'way between 157 & 158th is decent Latin American food (I like their Cuban Sandwiches very much--tho they've made me a couple of losers occasionally). Corporal Chicken is fair for a $2 grease fix on fried chicken. As for further down town, I've heard of some decent Latin American near 145th, but off the top of my head, I can't remember names.
