take-out dinner in EV - not asian
Hummus Place on St. Marks (a few paces away from East Village Books):
I can attest - after a door to door commute of almost an hour - that the Foul or Masbacha, along with some of the city's freshest, best pita, retains its' creamy deliciousness.
Katz's as well - just brought home two pastrami sandwiches a couple of nights ago, ate them almost an hour and a half later. The pastrami still went down like butter. Truly one of the seven wonders of the world.
