There are two kinds of lunchers in Midtown. Those who will travel (us), and those who won’t (the people who eat at Cafe Metro.) And within the group of people I like to refer to as Midtown Lunch’ers (those who travel) there are two sub sets of people: those who are just looking for good lunch at a decent price, and those who treat every lunch as some sort of adventure. Adventure lunchers are the ones who flocked to the 38th St Restaurant and Bakery (now Ying Du) after I wrote this post. Adventure lunchers are the ones who used Street Meat Palooza as a personal checklist (stomachs be damned!) Adventure lunchers are the ones who would choose grossing out their co-workers over their own personal well being. And yes, some of them will even eat the Walgreens Sandwich. (Although there are a lot of people who will eat a gross cold cuts sandwich from Walgreens, but wouldn’t eat at Ying Du… and those people are lame.)
It was with that attitude that I ventured into Kashmir Buffet on Tuesday, determined to finally try what is now the cheapest all you can eat buffet in Midtown.
