One of the habits that I'd like to develop this year is to get used bringing my lunch into work. Buying lunch takes out a considerable bite out of my budget, and generally, I've found myself getting bored of the food options around the office. I know that I won't be able to stop eating out entirely, but for now, I'd like to dial it back to only once a week. Let's see how successful I'll be with this goal.

Monday - bagel with egg & cheese
Wednesday - leftover pasta puttanesca
Thursday - garlic eggplant with rice
Friday - romaine, munster cheese and avocado sandwich, cinnamon sugar pita chips

I was not good on the picture-taking. I feel awkward taking photos of my food sometimes.

Caffe Roast Bean - Veggie sandwich, chips, ice coffee
Baluchi's - lamb korma with garlic naan and a mango lassi
Hiroko's - mix sandwiches & green tea shake
Murray's Cheese Shop - PMT (prisciutto, mozzarella, tomato) melt
Daisymay Bakery - pizza bianca & bread budding

The salad combination from Once Upon a Tart is the best lunch bargain in Soho. For $7+, you get all this: greek salad and chickpea salsa with a slice of fritata. Today, I wanted to get all fancy, so I added a glass of their ginger ice tea -- which was totally the best idea that I've had all day.

They also had this fancy display of cookies at the counter.

I was craving summer rolls (gỏi cuốn) the other day, but Soho doesn't have any good Vietnamese restaurants within walking distance of my office, so I had to stick getting an order from Mooncake Foods, which is an Asian fusion restaurant on Sixth Ave and Watt.

The summer rolls were disappointing -- they were at least half the size of what I'd usually get at my fave Vietnamese place in Queens -- but at least I got a Thai steak salad which sort of made up for the lackluster rolls.
