PROFILE: Philly Luncher “Anuj”

As we try to do at Philly Lunch, some 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 Anuj of Mt. Airy USA, who is obviously hoping ya’ll come out to Mt. Airy for the Street Fare Thursday night!

Name: Anuj

Age: 40

Occupation: Non-profit executive/attorney

Where in Philly do you Work?: Mt. Airy

Favorite Kind of Food: Almost any kind of hole-in-the wall ethnic restaurant, though nothing beats a slow-cooked smoked bbq!

Least Favorite Kind of Food: tripe flavored ice cream

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Philly: Dim Sum at Chinatown’s Ocean City (234 N 9th St) – one of the best Dim Sums in the city, but just be prepared for a long nap after lunch/brunch. Sang Kee and Salumeria in Reading Terminal (12th & Filbert).

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often?  Little Jimmie’s in the heart of Mt. Airy!

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Two of the world’s best dining cities I have visited are Istanbul and Rio. I’d give Istanbul a slight nudge over Rio because I can spend several hours eating lunch in Rio which would knock me out for the rest of the days.

 So, will we see you at Street Fare?
