While it's all very fabulous going out to dinner all the time at restaurants (or going at lunchtime as part of an allowable business expense), the truth of the matter is that a lot of office-dwelling trolls/young people like myself utilize a "grab and go" approach to lunch. Usually it's a sad sandwich from the deli downstairs and maybe - if you're having a good day and want to treat yourself - it's a sad sandwich combo (with chips and a drink!) from the deli across the street.
(Maybe it's just me and I'm projecting and maybe all of you are having fabulous lunches at Michelin-starred restaurants all the time. In which case, please ignore this.)
With that in mind, I wanted to put together a series on the blog that chronicles places in downtown DC and the DMV where it's possible to get an economical and tasty lunch that won't break the bank and won't take a million years so that you return to the office discovered your boss has fired you for underperformance (again, projecting.)
Today's NSOL features:
G Street Food
Three locations in downtown DC
What's the deal: Street food inspired snacks and entrees
Wallet damage: Most items under $10; sandwiches come with a side salad or fresh-cut fries (!) for only $1 more
What to get: Halal chicken and lamb combo (it's not Halal Guys but it'll do), banh mi, bulgogi quesadilla, alpine panini (with caramelized onions!)
Apparently these guys also do a killer breakfast sandwich, which is on my list the next time I'm stuck downtown early (or after a long night.)
One woman's journey to eat all the food. Or at least, most of it.
