    Captain Cream Cheese: fresh, delicious and filling. They have always-changing lunch options (if you only eat bagels for breakfast) like soups and pasta salad.

    The lentil soup was awesome. How did I forget to mention C3?

    Frutta del Mondo on N. 4th. Amazing paninis, pleasant place, good service.
    My usual order:
    1/2 He Man Panini (a half is the size of a normal sandwich): $3.50
    A side salad (greens, two kinds of olives, peppers, tomatoes, croutons, red onion): $2.50
    A can of coke: $1.45
    And seriously, this is a big lunch! The half-panini is huge AND it comes with chips. On a not-super-hungry day, any normal person could easily get full on a 1/2 panini and chips and soda for $4.95. Their side salad is really good. Plus it’s super close to where I work.

    Glad to hear a positive review of this place. I’ve been meaning to try it forever.

    Philips Coney Island on West Broad or anything at North Market are my favorites!

    The banh mi from the Vietnamese place in the north market is one of the best lunch deals in town IMO.

    In all of Columbus?

    Meat pies at Salam Bakery[/url] (though they’re often gone by lunch)

    Tacos campechanos plate at Azteco de Oro[/url]

    Just about anything from Mecca Market & Grill[/url]

    Ridiculously good pita sandwiches (I like the beef kubideh) at Jeddo Kabab[/url] (yes, that is how they spell it…)

    Great banh mi at Mi Li Cafe[/url] – they have a new, roast pork version that breaks the bank at $5.50

    Reasonably priced Somali fare at Banadir[/url]

    Of course, every now and again I might just grab a quick $5 lunch at a taco truck…

    Definitely do. Like I said, getting there can be a pain depending on where you’re coming from (i.e. I have to take 3rd across the highway then turn around and come back up 4th) but the quality of the food and the value is great. Quite a few of my coworkers have tried it and I’ve only heard positive reviews.

    I would put in a vote for the panbazo at Don Pedro’s taco truck[/url] on Cleveland Ave. Its $6 but its soooo good.

    I also really like Huong’s (Vietnamese)[/url] on Morse Road and Arirang (Korean)[/url] on Bethel.
