What the???


Food should NOT look like this. Ever.

Someone at work had the bright idea today of going to cheap Chinese food for lunch--someplace on Laurel Canyon and Magnolia whose name I don't care to remember. Anyways, on the recommendation of one of my office mates, I ordered the Shrimp with Lobster Sauce lunch special which tasted like ass and looked like jiz. I think that this place is one of those Chinese places that "cheat" and try to make their sauces look and taste richer by just adding tons of cornstarch. Nobody else's dishes looked very promising either--just variations of the slimy goo that I got. I'm back at work now, and I'm almost tempted to go back out by myself and get something else to eat. But I don't think I will, which is why I'm going to have to remind myself not to dwell all afternoon on that horrid experience.

I just realized that I've been quite negative in the last 3 posts. I'm not actually that unhappy though. I think coming off as generally unsatisfied because I haven't had a really great meal in a couple of days. Maybe I'll have to treat myself tonight...
