Halle & Amanda Do Lunch

Working in a store downtown means lots of eating downtown. I, along with most of the other girls I work with are too lazy in the mornings to get up and make a lunch, so we find ourselves eating out a lot. Halle and I decided to list the restaurants we frequent and what our favorite item is from the lunch menu. Halle is a vegetarian, so all of her selections are obviously meatless. Many of the restaurants use local and organic products, which most people in Ashland care about, but I don’t, like, not at all. All I really care about when ordering lunch locally is that they’re quick about making it. Us Village Shoes employees are running up and down stairs ALL DAY, so by the time lunch rolls around, I’m ravenous with hunger and I really don’t have the patience to wait too long. Since I’m walking to pick it up, I typically call in the order in advance so I actually get to lunch on my lunch break, as opposed to waiting for food for the majority of it.

Halle and I think that if you haven’t had our lunch picks yet, you’re missing out…

    Some delicious things mentioned! Although I avoid the J-pops for their after-effect on my system. J-pop burbs are stinky! My favorite at Agave is the carnitas taco. Seriously amazing. Love the list, I’ve got some new things to try.
