Inexpensive lunches near 7th Ave and 28th Street

I recently started working around here. I'm looking for everyday lunch options. Can be sit-down, can be take out, can be street carts. Just a nice variety of good places that aren't super-expensive. Some of the places I've heard good things about are: Milanes for Dominican, Sirtaj for Indian, BRGR for burgers and Koofoo for Korean. So, give me your impressions of these and tell me about the ones I don't know. Thanks.

  1. BRGR isn't very good.

    F&B is a good lunch option.

    1. Pars is very tasty Persian food on 26th between 7th and 8th. I really like the eggplant mash on the lunch menu.

        I totally disagree. BRGR is a great place, my favorite burger place in the city. try their version of onion rings called onion hay. nothing fancy of course.

      2. In close proximity is Garden of Eden and Whole Foods for take-out -- both not to be missed as you exhaust all the neighborhood possibilities.

        1. I get Kobma Thai's lunch special (located on Hudson) about twice a week--for about $9, you get a salad, drink, as well as a killer pad thai. I've tried loads of Pad Thai in town and really think that Kobma whips up one of the most authentic, and most certainly, bang-for-buck!

          I like to eats.

          1. I like Manhattan Heroes on 27th and 7th for rice and beans. the shrimp stew on Fridays is tasty too. Also, Waldy's Pizzeria on 28th and 6th. I like the lamb pizza...mmm.
