Conshohocken/ KoP Lunch Options

Chinon00 Mar 18, 2010 07:37 AM

I go out for lunch once a week with a buddy from work. Our office is in Conshohocken. We've gotten into a Desi Village (KoP) and Taqueria La Michoacana (Norristown) rut and are looking for alternatives. "Ethnic" is a plus.

      Might be a bit far afield but: Pho Tai Nam in Blue Bell for Pho/Thai food. You also have Thai Orchid on 202 in Blue Bell as well. Further up 202 you have Korea Garden and around the corner Gaya for Korean food. Of course in Norristown you have August Moon for Korean or sushi.

      Kabab Cafe is on 202 in KoP and has great Koobideh. The other persian place not far from Caspian Grill is Persian Grill..

      You might also root around a bit more in Norristown. Other than Michuacana, some people like Tacqueria Mexico Lindo which is up Main Street. I'm sure there are others there too.

      If you are into burgers, go up to East Norriton and go to Capones. Incredible beer selection too. For a cheap burger go to Nippers in West Norriton. Slightly bigger than a white castle burger.. 1.00 each on Tuesdays. And for another good pub, consider Brother Pauls, also in the Eagleville area. Good belgian selection.

        Hav you tried Stonewell on Ridge? Unpreposessing from the otuside, but surprisingly good.

          You could also try the Stone Rose in Conshohocken on Fayette Street. Very nice renovation, big windows to open in nice weather, and very friendly service. Only ate there once, and lunch was quite good.

            For great Korean soups and hot pots To Dam Gol on Township Line Road in Blue bell is the place to go. There are only Korean people eating there. The sign says Korean Restaurant in English and not the name of the place. It is in a little strip mall on township line road just before 202 with a Korean market at the other end of the strip mall. It is awesome. Very plain inside. A hot pot plus the little dishes they serve with it is a huge amount of food and so delicious.
            Thai Orchid in Blue Bell not far from the Korean restaurant is open for lunch and very good.
            Of course you have to go to Blue Fin for lunch! They make excellent sushi and their lunch specials are very reasonable.
            Blackfish is open for lunch. Not ethnic and a little pricey, but much cheaper than dinner and amazing food.

              Thehungrything is right on. All great picks for lunch! I would also add Persian Grill, a personal favorite of mine & the nicest family runs that place.

              It's always super crowded during lunch but I'd put a vote in for Chiangmai on 1st and Fayette. I'm pretty sure you can get a well priced lunch special but (as is the case for most Thai restaurants) I tend to venture beyond those options.
