As it customary here on Midtown Lunch, every Tuesday we’ll profile a different lunch’er and get their recommendations for places to eat in Downtown NYC. This week we have Monique, a devoted lunch’er who’s been itching for a chance to be profiled on Midtown Lunch but never really fell within the proper boundaries. Lucky her, we Downtowners now have our very own profile.
Name:Monique AKA Mo Diva
Occupation: Secretary and amatuer foodie/blogger
Where do you work?: Chinatown/Little Italy Area
Favorite Kind of Food: I love food too much to limit myself to one favorite food. I am a lover of all foods. But among my favorite cuisines: Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Thai, French, Italian, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Indian, and Mexican. I LOVE street meat but I haven’t found any in the downtown area that are worthy of the astronomical calorie count (within a short walking distance I might add). Big fan of Bread, Noodles, Soup, Rice, Cheese, and Crispy Pig Fat!
Least Favorite Kind of Food: I am no vegetarian, but I do enjoy a veggie burger every now and again… I despise with a passion a veggie burger that is made to taste like meat. Everything from the smell to the texture of a fake burger grosses me out. I loathe spaghetti squash, soggy pizza, mushy rice, anchovies, dry chicken, most frozen foods, and the smell of dumplings and congee in an office building.
