Any suggestions for my daily take-out lunch rotation? (midtown west.. 44/6th)

I have been working on 44th/6th for past 6 months.. below is my lunch rotation.. curious if you guys think I'm missing anything/need to add anything. I don't like walking too far (lazy), but I'm curious if you folks think there is anything I am missing.. any great delis, brazilian, indian, anything that I am missing? I never walk across broadway.. or really walk south of 44th now that I think about it....maybe there are some gems there I'm missing?

Kwik Meal cart (45/6th). Only if line isn't long.. I usually add extra vegetables ($2.00 ripoff) to mine, so for $10.00 from a cart and waiting 15 min for it.. don't think the food is that good its worth waiting for. I remember going to this cart a long time ago where you'd be the only one on line etc... i.e. when streetcarts had convenience factor. I have only done Biryani cart once at night (no lines yay) and wasn't so impressed.. I like Kwik meal with the raita (yogurt) etc. better.

Cranberry Deli (45/6th): I usually get chicken parm w/ hot peppers + extra saunce on toasted kaiser roll

Jamaican Dutchy Cart (?51/7th): only go rarely.. a littile far. Very good. Careful with overordering and make sure you do one of those spicy beef patties.

Kosher Deluxe: I just feel sometimes its so expensive as I don't need the full shawarma on hero etc. I love the little tray they give you for all the sides.. I just wish I could get a half sandwich/tray for half the price. Is it me or did prices go up recently? This place will largley be replaced by Kosher Oasis cart I think, although on the same at all...

Goodburger: occassionally do this, not often.
Kosher Oasis: new regular spot for this foodtruck on 47/6th.
Margon: great cuban and chicken sandwiches. Haven't gotten a platter from here yet, but I want to.
Utsav: $20 buffet is great for $20.. but often don't have time to sit down
Pret: I do occasional sandwich from here in 50s/6th
Wichcraft: Bryant Park.. did it once.. perhaps I should do it more. Any other suggestions in Bryant Park?
Little Italy Pie Company: Should I check this place out.. I never have when I think about it...
Connolly's. Will sit down occasionally and get the Lamb Burger. Never tried anything else there.

I don't hit any of the foodcarts on ?46th between 6/5th?.. tried the korean fish cart once.. fried fish sandwich.. tasted good.. just felt it was toooo unhealthy
