YATS WILL KILL YOU. But oh my lord, what a great way to go. $5 (no chump change!) buys you a heaping plate of rice and your favorite selection of the day with a side of garlic bread. Daily offerings vary, but count on seeing étouffée, red beans and rice, spinach and mushrooms, etc. There’s almost always something vegetarian available. Can’t decide? Get a split plate for a buck extra. Also try the downtown location on Massachusetts Ave. The owner, Joe Vuscovich, is something of a local icon.
