Restaurant Review

I usually bring my lunch to work but when I don’t, I’ll either pick something up at Subway or Rubio’s or I’ll go to the grocery store and get some fruit or a bagel or something. Today, I was headed to the grocery store on my lunch break. On the way, I passed a restaurant called Costa Vida. I had never been there, so on a whim I decided to check it out.

Oh, wait. I have been here before because it is exactly like Café Rio and Barbacoa and like 7 other restaurants in the Salt Lake area. Oh well. It’s nothing new but I decided to eat there anyway.

Yeah, the food is exactly like Café Rio except less tasty and more “throw-uppy.” It was not a good choice.

I got it to-go because I had a book on tape in my car that I was very interested in listening to. I sat in my car in the parking lot and watched the people passing by as I ate and listened to my book. (And if you promise not to laugh, I’ll also tell you that I felt like I was on a stakeout and started to imagine what I was staking-out and then had to remind myself, “Kim, you are not a cop or detective of any kind. You are not on a stakeout. Quit being a nerd.”)

After I was finished eating (I could only eat like half because the food was how-you-say-in-America-nasty.), I went back to work thinking, “I don’t feel good. I paid for that? Did I eat it or rub it on my face? My back hurts!”

I don’t think I’ll be returning to Crappa Vita anytime soon.

P.S. My boss doesn’t think “throw-uppy” is a word. Nerd.

Throw-uppy is on the word-of-the-day calendar in Jaime's room. I saw it while on a stake-out once. (hee hee hee)
