MilkBoy South Street, one of South Philadelphia's popular restaurant destinations, is set to debut a menu of daily specials with inspiration from elementary school cafeterias.
The "Lunch Lady Special" features seven days of recurring all-day menu offerings. The menu changes daily, so be sure to check back on the same day each week for your favorite foods. Each menu offering is $14.95, and will be served on aluminum lunch trays for an "elevated" cafeteria experience.
"The goal with Lunch Lady Special is to encourage our guests to return to MilkBoy South Street frequently and try something new and exciting," said Chef Yun Fuentes, culinary director of MilkBoy Philly and MilkBoy South Street. "This program also builds community, as certain guests will gravitate towards the weekday that their preferred special is being served week after week."
Yuentes and the entire MilkBoy team has also added more hamburgers, waffle fries, and other side dishes to its full line of offerings, with a focus on the "Hit Single," MilkBoy's effort to craft the perfect burger.
The full "Lunch Lady Special" menu is listed below.
• Monday: Grande Nachos El Gringo: Nacho chips, seasoned ground beef, melted cheese, salsa verde, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, queso fresco
• Tuesday: Chicken Fajita Platter: Grilled chicken breast, peppers, onion, served with flour tortilla and condiments like pico de gallo and salsa verde
• Wednesday: Hot Honey Bao Chicken Sliders: Steam bao buns, kimchi, spicy mayo, fried chicken, hot honey sauce
• Thursday: Chicken Parm Hoagie: Breaded chicken cutlets, marinara, provolone, parmesan, mozzarella, served on hoagie roll with long hots
• Friday: Flatbread Pizza with Chorizo: Garlic naan bread, mozzarella, tomato sauce, chorizo, red onions
