Chicago newcomer and blogger Gwynedd Stuart loves to eat out, but she also happens to be a poor person because she’s a Chicago newcomer and a blogger. In this weekly feature she seeks out affordable midday meals that don’t exceed five bucks (*actually seven, with tax and tip).

I’m so confused by Ghareeb Nawaz.

They’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which seems like it must be exhausting for the owners and operators of this high-volume Indian-Pakistani restaurant with an enormous menu. Also, they give you so much food and charge you so little money for it, which seems in conflict with generally accepted methods of running a profitable business.

But then I was less confused when the Internet told me that “gharib nawaz” translates to “helper of the poor.” It just so happens I’m poor. So thanks for the help.
