PROFILE: Downtown Lunch’er “Richard”
As is 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 Richard who works a little out of bounds, but really loves BonChon Chicken.
Name: Richard Chen
Occupation: Web developer
Where you work: Bleecker and Broadway
Favorite kinds of food: Asian! Specifically, Korean, because I can eat it all day and still not get fat or unhealthy.
Least favorite foods: Diner food. It’s very tasty but blasé on creativity, on the unhealthy side of things, high in oils and salts & also because they’re an N.J. invention, though their desserts are typically good.
Places downtown you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch: Downtown? I discovered the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck on Midtown Lunch years ago and oh, man am I excited for its return. Summer’s here!
Dream job location, purely for lunch purposes, and why: Lower Manhattan because the resurgence of food trucks down here in this less busy part of town is worth supporting whereas Midtown already has a healthy amount of support for them.
Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch: Downtown readers? Yes! What’s your idea for a food truck that no one’s done yet? And what’s your favorite food blog that’s not on the ML Blogroll?
I’m going to leave these questions to you guys since I’m pretty happy with the variety of food trucks we already have. And as always, if you would like to be next week’s Profiled Lunch’er (or know somebody you’d like to nominate), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
