ISO Cheap, yummy fare in Western CT
Okay, so my husband and I have our kids' favorite sitter lined up for tomorrow night, but our checking account is not accommodating an expensive dinner out. Where can we go in a reasonable (25 minute) driving distance from Newtown for a really yummy, possibly ethnic meal that will cost us $35, $40 tops for the both of us (no alcohol but tax and tip)? I have a hankering for Peruvian roast chicken, that really good hot sauce, plantains, and a batados (sp?), or I could go for middle eastern or some other cuisine as long as it is good, cheap, and not too far from home. I don't need ambiance, but I do want to remember that my husband and I are having a night out sans kids.
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions!
I know this is late, but check out my map. I see one or two that might fit the bill. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=106324921966915789140.00044a96c7a994f455333&ll=41.448388,-73.287735&spn=0.274837,0.703125&z=11
TATA’S RESTAURANT might be close to what you are looking for, but it's a hike.

Not on my map, but close, is Las Delicias Latinas

I was looking at what you have marked on your map around Newtown, and noticed that you have Lake Zoar Drive In about five and a half miles up the road from its actual location. It's further east on 34, in Stevenson (Monroe), not Sandy Hook (Newtown), past 111, right on Lake Zoar (part of the Housatonic River).
