SIP sip sips-ipsss

Another day came, and my stomach sang a song for daily bread. Under this kind of circumstances, I crave for a big bowl of spring green salad together with something spicy. well……Sip came into my mind. This deli/coffee shop always take my attention due to their coffee mug shape signage with sip on it. Deep relationship has been built up with my morning habit and this onomatopoetic word. That to say, this place has been unfortunate for this past years bumping into me in wrong time.  

I stared up to a ceiling mounted menu board for a minute (my goddess gracious..my neck hurt).  Hot & Spicy, Hot & Spicy, hot and spicy….damnit. but tah-dah~~~ They had Shiracha sauce! free on a side (1000 x +point!) Their eleven different mixed meat and veggie panini sandwiches were already made and displayed waiting to get some pretty grill mark (hmmm..let me think about that situation = ‘₪’). I ordred lunch special by listing turkey, artichoke parmesan and baby spinach where I could have just by saying #2!      -_-;;; The FOOD prepared in prompt manner of within 3 minutes (₪ helped).

Analysis

First of all, I would like to inform you that they claim “featuring Boar’s Head Premium Meats and Cheeses, served on house bread, grilled to order”

I guess many deli stores in the downtown in love with Boar’s Head brand. They are good, and I have deep history with the brand since living in GA. Artichoke mixed with parmesan cheese tastes like what it is supposed to be. As an whole, there is nothing to say bad actually; however, it sin’t flattering when the taste is compatible to Subway’s -a bit of exaggeration here..Subway’s has some sort of fridge-burn taste sometime. Because it costs $ 8.63 which includes a half foot sandwich, a cup of side salad and drink. Hoagie “wana-be” panini is a bit dried and dense for my preference. Turkey and artichoke combo is well-balance of taste if I had a package of pepper which they didn’t have. Mostly roman, a bit of spring green and shredded carrot is A SALAD. I stuffed that in my sandwich to get some extra moisture (is this happening because of ₪ ?).  Or am I just a ciabatta (The Station) woman? I love their very minimal packaging-everything in a box, but there is feeling of things running around inside..maybe a layer of paper around sandwich would be pleasant. Another minuscular disappointment comes from not getting a fork and napkin……..(….silence). The experience leaves me something there is un-fresh about it (probably because of ₪ … who knows the scene behind the counter). I can go back and don’t really mind. They definitely receive a huge point having Shiracha sauce (nya nya nya nya). I still love the station – shiracha, ciabatta, house sauces and salad for same price.

Dante’s Pizza

When you have been starved for more than 16 hours, your mouth likes to inhale rather than exhale, and this is what happened to me today. I usually get my lunch from the Filling Station when I work in San Antonio downtown. My last lunch I had there was pulled pork sandwich with chipotle sauce where I had no veggie that came with. Let me have some break from the Station. According to my first step in empirical observation, Dante’s thick oil shine American style pizza looks great in the photos. What others’ said about it? Click Here   

But I needed my veggie for my first meal and their description on salads was too simple for my hunger at the moment. I ordered “Santa Fe” sandwich which came with ranch dressing (?).

Dried chicken was probably cooked a day or days ago (they reheated in a oven) but decently seasoned with salt and pepper (it was still bit juicy). They did sectioned a whole chicken breast horizontally against the grain which cut out amount of protein in the sandwich. Carnivore Jung doesn’t like that. I got everything I asked for -Lettuce, tomato slices, olives, jalopeno and sauce on a side (I feel stupid that I asked though). It is pretty basic simple no rule sandwich except for the name. My lettuce
was a bit withered. So again…I was starving..

With $5.10 in total, I regretted that I should had gone to subway where I could have spinach. oh yeah, I found Mt. Dew (yes, Im the lover)~~~~Supernova and Voltage . . . .with the ridiculous price of $ 1.98 / bottle. . . . @-@;;;;; It is just my first..It is. No second..
