Good Eats near U of Penn Hospital

I'm taking my dad to the U of P Hospital on Monday and would like to know if anyone has any tips for me on a good lunch spot.

  1. Pod is good and very close by. They have bento box lunch specials that are good and pretty decent sushi.

    1. The White Dog on Sansom -- choose from either the bar or restaurant.

      1. We like the lunch at Nan, 40th and Chestnut. Street (meters) parking is available.
        Love their pad thai and their crabcake.
        Some places are closed on Mondays; it might be wise to check.

        1. If you're not looking for a sit-down place, I recommend one of the many trucks on campus.

          Don Nemo (sp) burritos, tacos, & tortas - 38th & Sansom
          Magic Carpet, Vegetarian fare - 36th & Spruce
          Crepe truck on Spruce btw 36th & 37th

          Sit-down -

          Try Lemongrass at 36th & Lancaster. 3 courses for under $10. Service can be a little rushed.
