Tuna sandwich. Carrot sticks. The standard takeout pizza for an upcoming office meeting. Lunch can sometimes be difficult to shake up from the usuals. Most of the time it’s because you are running around, and lunch is the last thing you are thinking about. Or if you’re the resident meal planner for your team, you may only have ten minutes to get everything booked.
It’s time to change up the standard fare for lunch. Recently launched in Austin, Food.ee is a premium corporate catering service that partners with the best in-class restaurants to deliver delicious, quality food to the company lunchroom. Foodee only partners with renowned local restaurants to curate unique catering menus for hardworking teams. Here are Foodee’s top 5 recommendations for the best office lunches to give a whirl.
1. Bucatini alla Amatriciana from Pasta Artigianale
For those who love a good Italian meal, no one does it better than Pasta Artigianale. Homemade pasta with delicious flavouring, you cannot go wrong with this local favourite. The Bucatini alla Amatriciana is served with a traditional pasta sauce, and made with bacon, cheese and tomatoes.
2. Lucky’s Sandwich from Lucky’s Puccia
Lucky’s Puccia, a Foodee favorite, always brings provides a fantastic food experience with authentic wood burning Italian sandwiches. The classic Lucky’s sandwich includes prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato, arugula, and chipotle aioli to make it “get in my belly now” delicious.
3. Kolaches from the Zubik House
This may not be necessarily a typical lunch, but the kolaches at The Zubik House are an important staple in your lunch diet. You can get everything from beef sausage to fig preserves with local goat cheese & brown sage butter. This Czech cuisine is definitely one to try with your team at the office.
4. Yassa Chicken over Rice from Cazamance
For those looking for a healthy option, Cazamance offers an array of gluten free and healthy lunch meal options. The yummy Yassa Chicken Over Rice is citrus chicken with Dijon mustard, green olives, onions & poblano and served with veggie jasmine rice. Not an olive person? Try the Goat Stew. You won’t regret it!
5. Uberoni Pizza from The Onion
For those who love pizza (and who doesn’t), The Onion knows how to spice up your pizza life. Although they are known for their after hours service, don’t let that fool you. The Onion offers an amazing take on the standard pepperoni with Uberoni: triple pepperoni, extra mozzarella, and a dash of cheddar cheese makes this an unbelievable pizza choice.
