When they see me on line they start cooking. They know what I want. We often exchange pleasantries.I told them that I work with tourists and that when they are looking for a "Real Brooklyn Lunch" I send them here. I asked them about their hot sauce. It is in fact home made from a family recipe
A family member recently told me that "all Moslem's want to kill you, they want to take your home a put up a tent. Read the Koran!" Wow. This food is Halal. They seamed like nice guys I figured I would ask them.

them: "We are from Egypt"
my: 10 year old son buts in "Crazy things happening there, I hope things work out."
me:" I noticed you food is Halal, are you Muslims?"
one of them: "I am Christian, they are Muslim, we are cousins."
me: "One of my relatives told me that Muslims want to kill me. Don't you just want to sell me lunch?"
them. "White sauce - hot sauce?" (Translation: You fucking white liberal from Park Slope, stop asking me stupid questions and let me bust my hump and send my kids to school)
Anyway, I don't always eat street meat. This weak was the kick of press event for Dine in Brooklyn. The deep fried deviled eggs (2:30) from the Water Street Restaurant were amazing. I can be seen stuffing my face at about 3:50.
