This week's Cheap Eats Instagram winner

Here are the six finalists for week one of our Cheap Eats Instagram giveaway:

Clockwise from top left:
- Mussels, fennel, pastina, tomato, Cinzano broth ($9) at Town, photo by anatta0
- Porchetta sandwich ($10) at The Whole Ox Deli, photo by brentshiratori
- Basil chicken ($8) at Bangkok Chef, photo by kyleepuu
- Lunch nabe ($11) at Ichiriki, photo by consuelasauce
- Bacon and Gruyere omelet en casuela ($6.50) at Morning Glass, photo by miss_cher
- Tofurkey kielbasa reuben with homemade sauerkraut ($10) at Kale's Deli, photo by jennmeleana

I could dive into every single one of these plates (and bowls and one cast iron pan) … I think this week's finalists just determined what I'm eating for the rest of the week. But since I can pick only one, I'm going with anatta0's photo of mussels from Town—plump mussels in a vermouth broth punctuated with tomato and sweet fennel. This, coupled with Town's herby french fries or bowl of polenta, is one of my favorite meals around, well, town.

anatta0 wins $25 to Tony Roma's. Congratulations!
