i'm so bored of sandwiches and salads. breadline, cap grounds, juice joint, blah blah blah. been there done that on seemingly everything in this area! anything new around? hidden gems?
It doesn't get much healthier than sushi... I like Cafe Asia, it isn't new, but... There also is Wasabi which is newer, I have had some not so fresh sushi there though. And both have cheap sushi (I think the best deal is Cafe Asia's sushi lunch special).
What about El Chalan, not new but different, or Aroma for Indian (not necessarily healthy depending on what you get)? I like the salads at the Art Gallery Grille.
Some of my favorites there aren't really healthy like the cuban sandwich at Dicky's Custard or a meatball sub at Hiedi's, or chinese in the food court at 18th and I. But they are at least cheap and something new.
Also Baja Fresh would probably have a few healthier options if you choose wisely:
It's really good. It's all faux meat but it's really convincing; especially the spicy chicken (I'm not a vegetarian) which I usually get on top of a salad. Also the green soup is delicious (I know it's not really soup weather right now...). Enjoy and go a few times so you can try a bunch of things. The staff is very helpful!
