Happy Friday the 13th!
Today’s rainy, gloomy weather here in Los Angeles is quite fitting for the infamous Friday the 13th! The closest thing to seeing black cats around the office was seeing a few creepy black crows circling past the windows seemingly looking for food. Yikes! Guess they can smell our food coming…or is it another type of food they’re looking for (IE – humans)…aaahhh!!! Okay…I think I’ve been watching too many zombie flicks hehe.
Well besides the flying version of black cats and the sideways rain hitting the windows, it was quite a sight to see the food delivery guy in his soaked sweatshirt bringing in 3 huge, rain-covered food carriers into the office. Poor guy, he should’ve called us down to give him a hand! Too bad we missed the chance of a great photo op. He looked like an ant carrying things twice his size!
On to the food ratings. Our champ delivery guy today came from Tower Pizza located in Westchester, about 10 minutes away from the office. This was another new pick for us this week. And a great choice it was! The office average rating for this place was a whopping 4 stars! Guess you really can’t go wrong with good ol’ pizzas, burgers and such. For the most part, everyone that ordered a pizza gave it a 4 star rating. The toppings people ordered were the common pepperoni, sausage, black olives, mushrooms, etc. Good stuff!
Another highly rated dish from this place was their fish and chips. This was ordered by our very own British coworker who found it to be a tasty, nostalgic dish that even included a side of vinegar, “just the way the Brits like it” she said hehe.
On the other hand, the Tower Hot Pastrami sandwich was the lowest rated dish. This dish was ordered by 2 people, who gave it a 2.5 and 3.5 star ratings, giving it an average of 3 stars. Their pastrami was a bit too salty for their liking. So this can be a risky pick if you’re new to pastrami or know what good pastrami tastes like.
As with many of the other places we’ve gotten delivery from, the food temperature seems to always be an issue. Basically, food is better straight from the kitchen. However, with the exception of pizza, some people even prefer it cold. Honestly, I’m not one of them. However, the quality and taste of their pizza sold me anyway!
Maybe when you actually go to the restaurant and get a fresh pizza, it would look more like this…
Until next time…bon appetit!
