PROFILE: Philly Luncher “Mackie”

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Singapore, because there is amazing Indian, Chinese, German AND Singaporean food!

Is there anything you’d like to ask the Philly Lunch readers? Are there any good ramen places in Philly?

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am looking forward to the opening of the ramen joint from the Khyber guys.
