PROFILE: Philly Luncher “Kayli”

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 Kayli, a red meat lover who is running Philly’s Diner en Blanc this week.¬†

Name: Kayli

Age: 31 (well, I’ll be 31 the day of DEB!)

Occupation: Higher education (student affairs)

Where in Philly do you Work?: University City

Favorite Kind of Food: medium rare filet mignon

Least Favorite Kind of Food: salmon

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Philly: I was obsessed with the Chinese food truck on 15th and Race when I worked in Center City. I’d eat there 2-3 times a week. Now that I’m in University City, I eat at the food trucks almost every day. Chicken satay tacos from Cucina Zapata, burgers from SpotBurger, the list goes on and on.

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Sabrina’s or we pick up something delicious from a food truck and eat at the Porch or Love Park.

Place you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch Philly: Jean’s Cafe. It’s my go-to for the perfect Saturday morning breakfast sandwich (oh wait, can I talk about breakfast on Philly Lunch? Whoops).

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Florence, Italy. Life would be perfect if I could eat pasta and gelato for lunch every day.
