Places for grab and go lunch - Teaneck and surrounding area

lovessushi Jun 19, 2008 07:55 PM

I will be working in the area (Teaneck/Bergenfield, Tenafly, etc.) and am completely unfamiliar with it - will only have time for lunch on the run- any recommendations for inexpensive, good quality (yes, an oxymoron sometimes, I know) places for lunch that I could get something nutritious and filling - thinking more along the lines of sandwiches/wraps, etc. as opposed to pizza, soup, and such.. So must be portable and not completely unhealthy! :-) Thanks!

      Thanks for all the great ideas! I never knew there was a Cuban place in Dumont...and the Veggie Heaven place sounds great - thank you!

      In Teaneck on Cedar Lane I would recommend Noah's Ark for real deli sandwiches and based on your name, I would recommend Veggie Heaven (also on Cedar Lane) for their veggie sushi. It is really amazing, and very healthy.

      On Washington Ave in Bergenfield there are many ethnic places that cater to a "to-go" crowd. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend a specific place, since I've only noticed this in passing.

      There is also a quiche place on Queen Anne in Bogota that makes great salads and sandwiches (along with quiche). I also love their soups, especially their cold soups.

      You'll actually be in a good area for healthy eating.

        Gertie's deli on Queen Anne Road - old German deli with great "green" potato salad.

          Cuban Eddies in Dumont has decent cuban sandwhiches and excellent ropa vieja (and they'll put it on a sandwhich)

          In tenafly:
          Tenafly Gourmet makes sandwhiches and has a lot of decent cold items
          15 Highwood Ave
          Tenafly, NJ 07670

          Though I've never gotten a sandwhich from there, there is also Chez Cheese on Washington in Tenafly that makes sandwhiches to order and look very good
