With newly granted “senior privileges”, arises the opportunity for seniors to sign out for lunch. If you are e unsure where to go, here are a few options. If you’re in the mood for something familiar, then you have the possibility of driving down to Subway, Taco Bell, MacDonald’s and Bagel Peddler; all located along Easton Avenue. If you don’t mind driving a bit further, then there is a world of food just waiting for you to taste.
When you get bored of the usual turkey or ham sandwich, try the Corner Café and Grill, at the intersection of Demmont Lane and Amwell Road. Their sandwich expertise is both impressive and mouthwatering – how good does a Grease Trap sound? Their food leaves you wanting to come back over and over. This café has a pleasant environment and easy-access parking. With quick service and great tastes, it is sure to please.
If you don’t mind paying for parking, come down to New Brunswick, where you can try trendy coffee places, out of this world hot dogs, bubble tea, tacos, and much more. Mamoun’s Falafel Restaurant located on Easton Avenue is a sure crowd pleaser with its classic chicken or lamb shawarma, hummus, falafel, and baba ganouj.
On the corner of Hamilton Street and Easton Avenue lies Tacoria, where Mexican street food is their specialty. When you stop by, try their out of this world hand crafted tacos, burrito boxes, or their quesadillas. Remember to order the guacamole too!
If Mexican street food isn’t to your liking, but you don’t want to skip out on the meat, try Destination Dogs, where hot dogs come in a variety of meats and flavors. Located on Paterson Street, this local dive serves destination and fresh chips.
If meat isn’t what you’re into, try Veganized on New Brunswick Street. Here, you’ll find soups and salads, pasta, and sandwiches that not only taste amazing, but a light vegan alternative to otherwise heavy meat-filled meals. Do note that this is a bit on the pricey side, but they do offer a convenient online order option.
