Why couldn't he find the hamburger? It's pretty easy to find. That's another correction that the metropulse should be printing. Fareed has hamburger meat. And hot dogs. And eggs. All reasonably priced.
The sandwiches are awesome and a great deal. Maybe he should have bought one if he was really reviewing this place. The "minuscule mini-deli" typically boasts a line full of a diverse group of people, ranging from college students to doctors.
The IGA does not "probably survive" because it's out of sight. It survives because it has loyal customers and is run by a talented and hardworking businessman.
This article is insulting and demeaning to our favorite neighborhood entrepreneur (who works an insane number of hours a week, but still always manages to be friendly to all of his patrons). Would this "reviewer" mention the television if it was playing in English? Would he mention anything about Fareed appeared Caucasian?
He has told homeless people to leave me alone. He even stocks ping pong balls, which I'm sure the kids living across Highland Ave. purchase regularly.
What other stores think to carry ping pong balls and an assortment of single dose hangover cures? Oh and kegs. You can't get those at Walgreen's.
Additionally, Fareed has sold all of his condiment cups to a party in need of jello shots, but had run out of cups. He does not even normally sell them, but just wanted to help us out. He even went in the back to find more. Then he asked us what he should charge for them.
I think this writer needs to get off of his high horse. Who does he think he is? He really comes across as a pretentious, condescending jerk. I happen to love our neighborhood and my apartment. And the IGA is my favorite part about living on 18th Street. But I guess my domestically brewed Abita Turbo Dog and Natural Light is somehow below this writer, just like my favorite store.
We will avenge Fareed and the 18th Street IGA!
