Top July Posts: Street Meat; Blimpie; Zest; Chaat


Wow.  What a month.  Street Meat Palooza, our 13 cart chicken/lamb over rice showdown, probably would have been enough to make any month “the best.”  Toss in a spicy off-the-menu vegetarian sub from Blimpie, Szechuan Gourmet, and a complete translation of the menu at Taj Delhi Chat, and I think July ’08 may go down as Midtown Lunch’s best… month… ever.  I’m pretty sure it will never be topped… until Street Meat Palooza 2 of course.  Here’s the top 10 posts of the month:
