Quick lunch in Fremont

Hanads Oct 28, 2007 10:49 PM

I recently started working in the central Fremont neighborhood and was wondering if anyone had recommendations for a good, quick lunch around the area. I usually take a 30-45 min break, so fast, prompt service is key but I'd rather not eat Taco Del Mar everyday.

      The Indian buffet on 36th is one of the better ones in town, I daresay. And certainly fast.

        I got the pulled pork sandwich and truffle fries yesterday at the Baguette Box and loved it. I think they could use an additional family-style dining table, but it was a beautiful day so I ate outdoors. Thanks for this recommendation!

          Yay! so glad you liked it. In the summer it's my "go-to" place for a nibble while walking around Fremont, addicted to those fries.....

        Ditto on Paseo. The sandwiches are to die for! I recently moved out of the area but I dream about these tasty sandwiches...

            I totally concur with the Baguette Box and Paseo recommendations. For Thai, I really like Kwanjai Thai. The food is cooked super quick -- so it'll definitely work for your lunch break. The "Special Noodles" are the best -- wide noodles stir fried with chicken, shrimp and veggies -- for under $8 I think.

              Great Recommendation! I had never been there and had AWALS walked passed it. Good Baguttes!

                On Thursdays, the Skillet airstream is in Fremont on the corner of Canal and 35th. Good, fast and cheap...

                  Blue Moon Burgers are a wonderful thing (get a shake too)

                  I've only been on the weekend, so I don't know if its open during the workweek... but I really like the lunch food at The Red Door. Reasonably priced and pretty damned delicious pub food. Plus, on nice summer days you can enjoy their patio.

                    Try the takeaway food window at Pontevecchio on 34th. It's fabulous!

                      Paseo rocks my world. Also, I love the sushi at Chiso.

                      I love the Brunch at Silence Heart Nest - maybe the lunch there is just as good??
