So I've been poring over <a href="http://www.chowhound.com/topics/36595... thread</a> in anticipation of potential jury duty next week, and have come up with a few suitable options, but was wondering if anybody has some more recent suggestions that might fit my needs.
I'm not on a Patina budget; I'm on more of a taco truck budget. I also have to keep carbs to a minimum because I'm pre-diabetic - I can do a couple tortillas, but I can't do sandwiches, for instance. And, thanks to a recent bout with norovirus that I don't care to re-live anytime soon, I've been temporarily scared off of anything raw (this includes salads).
So basically I'm looking for cheap, good, possibly Mexican, Chinese, or Thai, and definitely no sushi, sandwiches, pasta, or salads. Something simply grilled with a cooked veg side dish would be divine, but probably out of budget.
I'll likely be heading to La Luz del Dia, which is fine, but would definitely be up for trying something new.
Anyone up for the challenge of suggesting something that might make me actually look forward to my day(s) downtown? Thanks in advance!
