PROFILE: Philly Luncher “Alexandra”

As is customary at Philly Lunch, every Tuesday we turn over the site to a different lunch’er for his or her recommendations for the best lunch in Philadelphia. This week it’s Alex, a healthy public affairs manager who hates cake.

Name: Alexandra

Age: 26

Occupation: Public Affairs Manager

Where in Philly do you Work?: Comcast Center, 18th & JFK

Favorite Kind of Food: Tons of veggies, especially beets, carrots and cucumbers. I also love fish, cheese, bread and steak.

Least Favorite Kind of Food: I don’t like any kind of cake.

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Philly: Ralph’s Cafe (43rd Floor of the Comcast Center- it’s a cafeteria but it has the some of the best views in the city), Matyson, Butcher & Singer (1500 Walnut St.), Pikkles Plus (1801 Market Street).

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Comcast Center Marketplace Cafe.

Place you discovered thanks to Philly Lunch? The new Chops in Washington Square

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Greece! To sit outside and eat octopus.

Is there anything you’d like to ask the Philly Lunch readers? Where is the best Thai food in Philly?

Hmm, looks like both Alex and last week’s luncher Erik are looking for Thai food. I am going to have to make finding a solid Thai lunch my next mission!

  • Given that I am in University City, I tend to eat my Thai at Thai Singha House. Quite good and they have a really good lunch and early-bird special (plus Thai beer).
