|Good Eats Within|
We've been driving through Mt. Kisco for ages, stopping for gasoline, bathroom breaks and an occasional greasy, fast food meal that we inevitably regret, later. For the latter, there's a Friendly's, a Burger King, a Chinese American place that makes eggs foo young and semi edible kung pao chicken -- and for years, we thought that was the best we could do. But on a recent pass through town, we stumbled across a place that has transformed Mt. Kisco from a necessary evil while road tripping to a foodie destination.
The key to this transformation is Sofia Deli and Cafe. It's an outwardly nondescript little place in the same strip mall as a Woof & Wash and the popular bar / restaurant, the Village Social. The owner is a dignified gentleman from Guatemala who runs the deli with his son, and there are a number of interesting Guatemalan offerings on the menu, in addition to the usual sandwich / burger / smoothie / bagel / salad deli standards.
