This is what happens when you eat lunch after 2 pm

A big shout-out to Steel City Sandwich Truck for this amazing smorgasbord of East Coast delights.

Pierogies on the left (grandmother’s recipe), fried zucchini on the right, and a delicious Italian sandwich to top it off.  Slawth and Slawppy were very satisfied customers.

Sushi…Chipotle Style

The closing of juice bar after juice bar (we miss you, Robeks!) in the Wells Fargo building recently brought us Let’s Roll, a made-to-order sushi joint in the style of a Chipotle Cilantro or Subway.

The gist:

  • Pick how you want your lunch: a bowl, rolls or a salad (salad in a wonton bowl! the Asian version of tostadas!).
  • Then choose the fish (or veggie) product.
  • Add 4 extra toppings, as many sauces as your heart desires.
  • A soft sprinkle of sesame seeds on top?  You decide.

Click below for the ensuing combinations:

America the Beautiful

Friends,

 What do you think makes America so great?  Is it our democratic process?  Our country music?  Our love of football and all around intolerance of futbol? If you ask me, America’s “wow” factor, the piece d ‘resistance, the thing that stands out above the rest is….drum roll please…. Continue reading

Is it worth the hype?

Short answer: Yes.

Long explanation:  Look at the line…

…and consider all the other lunch options (one of which are the delectable tamales slawth posted aboutt; my personal favorites are chicken (add the green salsa) and spicy beef (pairs well with red)) at the farmers’ market, and you can see why we hardly ever eat Hawaiian barbecue chicken.

Flight of fancy

First of all, we’d like to apologize to our readers who were anxiously awaiting our next post.  I have a feeling our work computers are monitored, because the instant we gained a “following” (yes, I’m talking about you, our 2 subscribers), work suddenly hit the fan.  Coincidence? I think not.

Instead of a post about a lunch destination,  I wanted to highlight one of my other favorite things in downtown. Don’t worry, food is still peripherally involved.

Intrigued?  More, after the jump.

Eating Outside Makes Us Happy….

Fridays are great for so many reasons.  As a child, it was the day that Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Stephanie Tanner and friends (how rude!) graced the television.  As a student, it was the start to what was sure to be a weekend of havoc.  And now, as a professional, it is the best lunch day of the week… farmers market day.

More, after the jump.

Doin’ a little east coast swing…

En route to Philadelphia for work, so I thought I’d do a little shout out to my favorite Thursday lunch truck: South Philly Experience.  You know someone’s serious about its sandwiches if it ships its bread in daily from Philadelphia.  One of our coworkers is a Philly transplant and has emphatically stated that these are the best cheesesteaks he’s had in Los Angeles.

The cheesesteaks come in chicken or beef, and there’s a veggie option as well.  Said coworker prefers his cheesesteak “pizza style” with marinara sauce.  I’m in the minority, but my favorite is the Italian cheesesteak, which comes with provolone and broccoli rabe.  Something about the word “broccoli” makes me forget that my elbow is sitting in a pool of grease.

Starry Kitchen

After taking a far too long two-week hiatus from Starry Kitchen, my co-worker and I were happy to see our highly offensive, extremely energetic, ball-loving, ever so passionate about his (wife’s) food, friend.  If you don’t know who I am referring to, you should make a point of visiting Starry soon.  Look for the guy up front taking orders, standing next to the hole in the wall, which was kicked by said restaurant owner in one of his furies of excitement.

One of our favorite lunch hour haunts, Starry provides pan-asian comfort food that packs a ton of flavor and creative menu items.

More, after the jump.

El Colmao

Today I ventured out of downtown proper to El Colmao to meet a friend for lunch.  I’ve been a few times before, but have always only ordered one main dish from the menu: the ropa vieja.  “Old clothes?!” you may ask, but it’s actually shredded beef stew with buttery rice, and a side of black beans.  You can also order the beans mixed in with the rice (which is quite tasty).  Part of the reason why I like the ropa vieja is because it tastes like Chinese food: stew + rice = yummy!

More, after the jump.

Welcome!

Welcome to our blog!  Rather than a long description of us and how ATS came to be, here’s a short bulleted list of what you can expect from this blog.

  • Sporadic posts.  If you don’t hear from us for a while, we’re probably eating at our desks.  Pity us.
  • Grainy photos.  If you’re looking for hi-res photos of delicious food, our sincerest apologies. Unfortunately, we don’t go to lunch with DSLR cameras, but our blackberries are never far from our side. In fact, we’re probably checking it while writing this entry.
  • Concise entries, good grammar and the use of spell check.  We’re lawyers. ‘Nuff said.

Happy reading (and eating)! And don’t forget to take our poll!
