Frugal Friday at Ahmo's satisfies a vegetable craving with Greek Pita
Mary Bilyeu, Contributor
So I took myself to Ahmo's on Stone School Road — our Frugal Floozie Friday feature this week. This is one of three locations around town, each offering the same great food and friendly service any time I stop by.
Having indulged in a lot of things with, shall we say, less than redeeming nutritional value around that time, I was craving something with vegetables. So I was very happy to find that there were numerous healthy menu options within our mandatory Frugal Floozie Friday budget of $5 per person.
I ordered the Greek Pita for $4.49, and it was prepared almost immediately, despite there being several customers ahead of me; this could definitely have qualified as "fast food."
As you can see from the picture, the sandwich's filling was so generous that it could hardly be contained once I unwrapped it from the tight foil swaddling I'd brought it home in. The vegetables were fresh and crisp, flavorful and perfectly dressed without being soggy and soaking through the bread.
Each of the six vegetable pitas costs less than $5, and there are also soups, appetizers, side orders, desserts and half portions of salads for anywhere from $1.50 to $4.99. You can even go to Ahmo's for breakfast options that meet our rigorous budgetary standards.
How great to find Frugal Floozie Friday options on the menu all day long!
