Melissa Plaut Says

Punjabi is just this taxi joint that is frequented by, obviously, many South Asian cabbies—it's Indian, Pakistani food that's totally vegetarian. It's pretty delicious, only about $2 for a hearty bowl of food, and they have pretty high turnover so nothing has been sitting there for a very long time. You can stand and eat, there's a big water cooler, and you're in and out and with no questions asked. Lots of other people go there other than cabbies, but it's owned by a former cabbie, from what I've heard, so he's very sympathetic to our kind.
