Day-by-day, I’m settling into the routines of working as a communications specialist at the Liverpool Public Library.
Yes, I’m again talking lunchtime here. Early on, I posted about the lovely two-block walk to eat on the bench by the Onondaga Lake Park marina.
Not on Fridays, though. Not anymore.
On the final work day of the week, I feed my Chinese food takeout jones.
My co-workers told me of King’s Chef. It’s about a mile or so down Old Liverpool Road, sort-of fronting an old strip-style shopping center.
Like many of its brethren, it doesn’t look like much from the outside.
But it’s worth my new Friday routine. I grab my iPhone 6, call the number and order from the lunch menu. I’ve tried the General Tso’s chicken, roast pork with Chinese vegetables, pepper steak with onions and chicken chow mein. All come with pork friend rice. I add-on won ton soup. Total price with taxes: $5.99.
I’ve split between walking down to pick it up and taking my car out of the parking garage for a quicker trip.
I’ve eaten at my desk every time.

With a half-hour lunch break, it’s close. But I can work and eat at the same time. And nobody’s complained so far about me eating at my desk.
The food is good. Soon I will try an egg roll.
If you’ve clicked, what do you think of the King’s Chef menu? What would you order from the lunchtime specials? Have you eaten at your desk, and if so, what do your co-workers think?
