Day 41: Kosher Switch-up In Penn Station
My first attempt at lunch was unsuccessful. I had a meeting to run to, and not much time, so I went downstairs to the basement that is Penn Station to pick up a Yummy Sandwich, hoping for a good ceasar grilled chicken wrap. When I got to Primo Cappucino, I noticed that all of the kosher sandwiches were fish or cheese based, and none had any chicken. Upon further inspection, I realized that they were not Yummy Sandwiches at all – they were Circa sandwiches! They had several different tuna and vege wraps, and assorted cheesy looking sandwiches. I am generally a big fan of Circa, but nothing looked appealing to me. And 8 dollars for a tuna fish wrap seems kinda insane. So I went back to my office, went to my meeting for an hour, and then ordered in from Circa. The website listed a cantaloupe soup, which I would have tasted if I was at the restaurant, but I thought was too risky of an order without a taste test. I decided to get a pizza, since I was hungry and cranky and two of my computers had crashed and almost died in the last 2 days. For some reason, there is no whole wheat pizza option on the Circa website. I had to call my order in and request a whole wheat pizza, light sauce. It came pretty quickly, and seemed to be a bit bigger than the one I ordered last week, so maybe that smaller one was a fluke. It was extra cheesy and as always, deliciously satisfying.
