For a lunch meeting, a business contact asked what I'd like for lunch.
I made the standard comment of, "Anything will be fine." With his first
suggestion of Cambodian, I wasn't really in a point to counter, based on
my previous statement, so I agreed. I was actually looking forward to
something out of the norm until I was informed that it's just like Chinese
food, so down the toilet went that anticipation.
I had no prejudices, despite the upfront information provided to me. I
wasn't sure what to expect (except, at least, rice). Upon opening the
menu, everything was familiar, once I was able to decipher it. The lunch
special prices were phenomenal. Heck, the dinner prices were even good.
Later I found out that they make the money back from you on the cost-per-refill
I was not overly ecstatic about the food. Though
I'm used to rubbery meat at inexpensive oriental restaurants, I'm of course
always hoping for better. The interior was either not decorated, or it
was decorated with random garage-sale drapes -- I couldn't tell if they
were intentional or not. The service provided was only out of necessity
(to take our order, bring our food, etc), as we were not attended to often.
"You get what you pay for," holds true once again.
