PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Blondie”
Every Tuesday I turn over the site to a different Midtown Lunch’er for his or her recommendations for the best lunch in Midtown. Today it’s Siobhan, but you probably know her as “Blondie,” half of the duo “Blondie and Brownie” from the blog of the same name. An avid Midtown Lunch’er, Blondie loves pizza and has been eating her way through the Treats Truck one treat at a time…
Age: Mid 20s
Occupation: Freelancing at an ad agency, but my passion lies in the blogosphere (http://blondieandbrownie.blogspot.com)
Where in Midtown do you Work?: Grand Central Area
Favorite Kind of Food: Dessert, pizza, peanut butter, cheese, BBQ, and lately (and very surprisingly), Indian
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Metro. It smells funny; I won’t even eat it when it’s free.
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: I’m a big fan of the chicken pita at Kwik Meal (45th & 6th), and the chicken, rice and beans from Sophie’s Cuban (multiple locations.) Also, I wish I was more to the west so that I could enjoy Kati Roll (on 38th btw. 5+6th) more often.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? My coworkers tend to get Metro and Bistro Gourmet, two places I’d rather starve them eat at. Sometimes my body calls out for nutrients, and I’ll give it some Cosi.
Place you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? I did first hear about the Treats Truck here. Thank you Zach.
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? With all the posts Danny on Food in Mouth has been doing about Portland, Oregon, I’d say there. Of places I’ve actually been to, I’d have to go with the East Village.
Is there anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? It’s summer. I’m hot. Where can I get some bubble tea? (PS Bossman, I know what you want to ask; no they don’t.)
I have no idea what bossman wants to ask… but I’m guessing we’ll be enlightened in the comments. As for bubble tea, I feel like this has been discussed a bit in the past few weeks, but we can re-visit. Check out the milk tea with tapioca pearls I had last week, after the jump…
From the Fay Da Bakery inside the Lunch Box Buffet which got written about on Friday. There’s also Ying Du (which I recommend), Hing Won (which most people don’t recommend) and Dishes (which is expensive and apparently not real bubble tea.) Anybody else care to comment? Feel free below…
