Workday lunch in SD?

The boss and I usually do lunch once or twice a week. We have a handful of places that we always go to, but I wanted to see if y'all can add to the list. We're in the Torrey Pines area and we have about 1 1/2 hours for lunch. So, wherever we go, we have to allow for driving time and faster service. There's not much in the Torrey Pines area, so we're usually headed out to Mira Mesa and Clairemont Mesa.
Our usual places include:
Tofu House (Clairemont)
Pho Viet Cali (Mira Mesa)
Pho Tu Do (Clairemont)
Occasionally, we'll go to Dumpling Inn or China Max. As you can see, we're not incredibly varied. Any suggestions will help! Thanks!
I work pretty close to you and I agree that the UTC area is pretty barren as far as good non-chain lunch places. Some of my favorites are:
Nozomi (UTC, same menu as the one on Convoy)
Porkyland (Mexican, near downtown la jolla, but prices are cheap and the carnitas is very good)
Jeff's Burgers (La Jolla Shores, very casual beach shack type place, was recommended to me on this board, the decor and atmosphere is not the best but the burgers are pretty good considering the area)
Board and brew in Del Mar for great sandwiches
Caliente on Sorento Valley Road..yummy Mexican
Spicy City in Clairemont...great Chinese food
