On Monday Bonnie and I tried a new fast food restaurant near our office. It's called Zen Burger, and I believe it's related to the Zen Palate restaurant. The idea of Zen Burger is that it's completely vegetarian, affordable, and quick. Well, so far they've got two out of three.
I ordered the chicken sandwich meal, which upon trying made me say the oft-quoted opinion "tastes like chicken!". It really was pretty close, and the prices were comparable to any other fast food restaurant. The only problem was that it wasn't really fast. They take your order right away, and then you wait fifteen minutes for the food. Though there is ample seating, the area around the counter is so crowded with people waiting for their order to arrive, you begin to feel anything but "zen". Remember that the placed is located a stone's throw away from Grand Central Station, one of the busiest office areas of the city. Time is money, as they say.
Of course, it's only just opened. Perhaps they just need to iron out their system. I'll give it another go in a few weeks, because I do like to encourage affordable, healthy vegetarian food. Plus I noticed through the crowd of office workers waiting that there was Revolution iced tea. I'd like to see if that's any good.
As for today, I'm home sick. I thought I'd avoid whatever is going around, but I'd have to have an amazing immune system to pull that off. Well, any excuse to sit around drinking tea and sleeping all day.
