OC Weekly Intern Lunch! Extremely Student-Friendly Fare at Mitsuwa Market
|Spicy Miso Pork Ramen and Curry Rice + Soba Noodle Combo: Both for Under $20|
I have always been guilty of buying a chunk of good cheese and heirloom veggies over a pair of new shoes any day. But these days, I have actually found myself questioning my (phantom) disposable-income-driven chosen career that once seemed so bright.
Which is why this last intern lunch at Mitsuwa Marketplace was particularly comforting.
It was a "must-have-Indian-lunch-buffet" kind of day at the Weekly world headquarters but the cubicle-mate Mi Tran
Thank you, Mimi! It was my first time at Mitsuwa Market (hey, don't hate on an Eastlos guy--have you been to Al and Bea's? Thought so) so I was pretty much swept off my feet just by walking inside. The food court hosts a handful of busy stands, of course, all displaying their delicious specialties through those notorious deceptive, plastic renditions that we all still drool over.
Mimi satiated her ramen fix in the form of some spicy pork ramen ($9) from the popular Santouka stand. I still acted on my curry urges, ended up at the cheapskate-favorite Miyabi-Tei right next door with a zaru soba plus curry rice plus salad combo set (for under $7!).

Talk about a balancing meal.
