There are a few things in our day to day goings on that make life and business pursuits palatable. A satisfying lunch is an important part of a productive day. And, relying on colleague's advice prior to making the lunch choice is just as important.
What happens when these things fail to work or let's say more mildy, disappoint? Exhibit I, I introduce to you the lunch culprit of the day, a large bowl of chili soup from Druxy's @ Scotia Plaza.
When it comes to chili soup, I set the bar pretty low since Wendy's generally hits the spot --- at under $3 for the large bowl I should add. So, you may query, why did I go to Druxy's? -- fyi, price is $3.80 for the large soup.
Upon the recommendation of a quasi trusted source, Druxy's was supposed to be decent and surefire chili soup winner. Well the transaction wasn't smooth and the soup, left much to be desired. On the positive side, the soup was hot and from the photos looks cosmetically on par with other chili soups in the same price range.
Before I get into the particulars of the food product and a side note, I wasn't actually able to purchase a large soup since at 11:40am, Druxy's only had enough chili soup for only a 3/4 serving. They did give me a $1 rebate for failing to deliver what I ordered.
In terms of the final product, the chili tasted metallic, and the beans felt like they needed a shave. If you've ever chewed hair, you know what I mean. Bottom line, the chili had no taste and President's Choice ketchup would have been a substantial improvement. Don't even want to mention the beef, well if there was any beef, because I've had shoe leather that had more protein.
Final thoughts. On the bright side, I can try getting my lunch right again tomorrow. On the gloomy side, I'm stuck with my colleagues so maybe they'll get their lunch advice right tomorrow too. As for chili, I'll stick with Wendy's.
