Only 5 dollars to spend in South Brooklyn...
Where would you head?
What would you eat?
If by South Brooklyn you mean the Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens/Red Hook (the old name for the nabe), I would get an italian ice ($1.25) at Court Pastry on Court Street and then I would head west to Henry Street and order a rice ball (with sauce on the side) and regular slice at Nino's ($3.75-ish).
By South Brooklyn, I actually meant a huge area also encompassing Fort Greene/Clinton Hill as well as Chinatown and Sunset Park. Maybe I should just say all of Brooklyn except for Williamsburg/Greenpoint and other areas that are a pain in the but to get to by train from Fort Greene.
Seven prosciutto balls from Joe's Superette ($3.50) and a cannoli from Court Pastry ($1.50)
RedHook Ballfields: Beefsteak taco ($2.25), cheese pupusa ($1.50) and a cup of fresh juice ($1.00)
Soup dumplings ($3.50) to go at Chance (though not the best in the city, credible for the area) and a cookie from one of the nearby bakeries
Two tacos from Fast and Fresh deli
One slice of Red Velvet Cake from CakeMan Raven ($5, no nuts for me)
Whole seedless watermelon from Pathmark ($4.99 special this week)
Loaf of cheese bread from Mazzola ($4)
