Park Slope cheap eats near 5th and Union?

We just moved from Carroll Gardens to Park Slope. Though we are somewhat familiar with the area (I used to live in South Slope), we don't know it inside out.

Right now, we are on a quest for the cheap ($30 and under for 2), easy, and relatively healthy dinner on a weeknight. We know about Hunan Delight and Aunt Suzie's. Any other suggestions?

    1. Olive Vine on 7th and Berkley. It's also BYOB.

      1. Welcome to the neighborhood.

        Try S'nice, on 3rd street and 5th avenue. . .not pricey, good food slanted a bit towards vegan (ie healthy).

        Song serves excellent Thai food, on 5th avenue, bet 1st and 2nd, reasonably priced, cash only. We tend to go for take out; I'm not sure it would be considered healthy, but definitely yummy.

        Next to Song is El Pollo, Peruvian Cuisine, which is reasonably priced, and has excellent Chicken.

        On the other side of Union, I recommend Press 195, on 5th ave; excellent Pannini's, etc. reasonably price, great variety.

        Hope this helps.

        1. JPan Sushi, 5th Ave between 1st and 2nd, especially for the lunch specials. Nice garden out back.
          We also regularly take out from El Pollo for chicken, rice and beans. Few people eat at the restaurant itself, but they sometimes run out of chicken so I think they do a decent take-out business.

          1. Song for Thai
            Press 195 for Pressed Sandwiches
            La Taqueria for Mexican
            Olive Vine for inexpensive (but not the best) Mediterranean
