Seven Of Dallas' Best Lunches That Are More Than Worth Your Hard-Earned Dough

Lemongrass
This bowl of pho costs $10.95 at lunch and comes with a nice chicken salad as a starter and a peeled orange to close. The three together make a substantial meal and at this price, it's a steal.

The broth leans heavily on star anise and cinnamon, which may annoy some, and neglects tendon and tripe, which is definitely a sin, but it's a great bowl of soup. The noodles have snap and a springy, chewy texture that lend themselves to delightful slurping.

When you make your own deli meat, good things happen. If the turkey sandwich isn't for you, try saying no to the pastrami with braised cabbage.

This shawarma sandwich may be the best thing wrapped in bread you can get downtown. Flavorful hanger steak and tabbouleh are a match made in heaven. Just make sure you request freshly baked bread from the tandoor over. Otherwise you'll get some pre-packaged crap.

Jimmy's sandwiches are delicious for a great price. And if I want pho I'll go to Vietnam & get 2 for the price of one from Lemongrass.
