Lois Soloman writes the Cheap Eats column for the Sun Sentinel’s website. She recently published a compendium of her picks for Broward County. Her criterion is an entrée for less than $20, which is about what you’d pay for a large meal at any fast-food restaurant nowadays. Post-COVID restaurant prices have risen significantly due to supply chain issues, higher wages for employees, and, as anyone who has been to the grocery store lately can attest, the higher cost of food.

Everyone who returns from trips to Asia always raves about the street food carts. Delray Beach has a restaurant that specializes in that fare. So, if you can’t afford a quick trip to the Far East, head to Delray’s Hawkers Asian Street Food for a quick vacation fix. Hawker’s may be a chain (there are a dozen or so locations, mostly up and down the Atlantic seaboard), but the Delray location is the only one in South Florida. Is the food authentic? Maybe not, it’s been adapted for the American palate, but like all good Asian street food it mesmerizes all five senses: sight, smell, sound, touch, and of course, taste.

Epazote opened in April 2023 and is run by the Mexican-born Carrasco-Mendez family.  It is everything you want in a family-owned and run restaurant; authentic Mexican cuisine, friendly service, beautiful presentation, and a desire to truly please the customer. The service is never hurried and true to the familial aspect is a little less polished, but that’s a minor quibble when everyone is so eager to please.
