Is there interesting food for lunch in North Philly?

I've been working recently in the area of Broad of Girard, just south of Temple U. I'm azazed at the dearth of eating places at lunchtime. There are McDonalds and other fast food places and a new TGIF kind of place called the Draught House on CB Moor off of Broad (Not inexpensive. The food carts are really boring compared to ones at Penn (and note cheap (most sandwiches near $5.00).

I've made the trek (I have a car) all the way to 2nd and Poplar to the new Gianfranco's Pizza Rustica at 2nd and Poplar but I can't have pizza every day!

So I'm thorowing up challenge to you Chowhounds. Anyone got any ideas for interesting food at lunch near Temple or As far east as 2nd St?

Thanks! I'm VOUNTING on you!
