PROFILE: Philly Luncher “Kylie”
Though we have been lacking volunteers lately, on certain Tuesdays 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 Kylie, a PR director who lunches in Old City.
Occupation: PR Director
Where in Philly do you Work?: Neff Associates in Old City
Favorite Kind of Food: Reigning from Australia, I am used to a lot of Asian influenced meals. Thai, Vietnamese, and Malaysian foods really do it for me.
Also, anything with avocado. Grilled avocado, salt , pepper and little lemon juice is the perfect lunch accompaniment.
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Anything with mayonnaise on or in it. WTF America? Gross.
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Philly:
Fork etc – Butternut Squash soup with a side of brussels sprouts
Generic Food Truck on 3rd & Chestnut – lamb gyro platter w/ extra tzatziki
Cafe Ole - the European grilled cheese
European Republic – the wrap, frites, and drink deal for $7
Khyber Pass Pub – Smoked Brisket and pinto bean chili
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Fork etc. I think everyone behind the counter knows me by name.
Place you discovered thanks to Philly Lunch (if any) Janeane reminded me to rediscover Cafe Ole’s Shakshouka, YUM!
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? There’s a small fishing/surfing village in Ecuador I visited years ago called Montanita. Lunch every day consisted of fresh coconut water and ceviche made to order on the back of a local’s beachside cart. I’m not sure my PR services are needed there but if I ever got to the position where I could work remotely, Montanita would be on the top of my list.
Is there anything you’d like to ask the Philly Lunch readers?
Is broccoli rabe a made up vegetable? I mean seriously, I had never even heard of it before moving to Philly.
I HATE the rabe. I wish it wasn’t everywhere.
