When the economy sours, journalists tend to like to find unique economic indicators, often with food. This includes sushi, Big Macs, lattes, and Spam. And locally, this phenom occurred with a recent Punky's
review memo, sort of:
Beefy guys will enjoy the fact that they can get a whole Italian at Punky's for a very reasonable $4.75, or a half for $3, and still have money left over for something fried to go with it – onion rings, mozzarella sticks, fries, chicken fingers, yadda yadda yadda. The long-haired elite types are welcome at Punky's, too. Brown rice jambalaya was a recent special for just $5.14, and there's a new falafel roll-up on the menu for $6, via PPH.
