One of the highlights of my work day is what I’m going to have for lunch. Some people think it’s so important that they blog about it. Unfortunately, I’ve had two substandard lunches in a row.
On Monday, we went to the Varsity Grill on 4th. I ordered the three kinds of seafood with rice. One of my co-workers ordered it last time and it looked good. The dish had vegetables, fish, scallops, squid, and prawns. So, I decided to order it. When it came, it certainly wasn’t three kinds of seafood. It was all prawns! That’s one kind of seafood. I wanted to complain but our waitress seemed spaced out.
Then today, we went to Sophie’s Cosmic Cafe for lunch. Sophie’s is usually awesome both in food quality and atmosphere. I had the club sandwich with salad. Ordering that was a mistake. The chicken was real turkey breast but it was really dry and tasteless. It was like chewing on cardboard. None of us got a choice for our dressing for our salads. We all got ranch even though afterwards, she said there was a vinaigrette available. Why didn’t you tell us that before? To top it off, the salad was warm and limp, like it had been out in the sun for a while. I was not impressed. The only saving grace was one of my co-workers let me have a spoonful of his five dollar shake. It was tasty and I felt like I was in a movie.
I wonder if my lunch will suck tomorrow.
