Good Cheap Eats Around UPenn

benito417 | Sep 15, 2004 06:17 PM

Well as a New Yorker turned University of Pennsylvania student I have quickly begun to go through NYC food withdrawl. It appears that the food scene around Penn is pretty bleak, I have had a few mediocre lunches at the food carts but more bad than good. I have also tried most of the usual suspects around campus with little success (Allegro, Copabanana, New Deck, Qdoba, Fresh Grocer etc). Im really looking for some standout restaurants or carts that would work on a student's budget (<$10). Im particularly game for ethnic food, which was always a great way to eat cheap and well in NYC. I am willing to walk a bit (maybe 10ish minutes) but cant go too far on the weekdays due to classes and work. Can anyone point me in the right direction?? I REALLY appreciate it!
