My old friend from work, Jefe and I decided to go out to lunch and since Zen West is close to our office, we headed over there. It was empty when we got there at noon, and we got a table next to the window.
The server brought us a basket of tortilla chips and some salsa and we dug in. After one bite, I realized that the oil used in cooking the tortillas was rancid. I mentioned this to Jefe, but he didn't think that he could taste it. Needless to say, I refrained from eating any more chips.
After about a 25-minute wait, our food was finally delivered, missing the guacamole that Jefe had specifically ordered. The kitchen had put Jefe's lunch under the broiler to melt the cheese, but in doing so, they completely dried out the black beans until they were cracked.
I had two tacos, one soft and one hard. The hard one was completely stale. It was crunchy, but in a bad way. The soft taco was pretty good and the meat was nicely done. For $23.00, including two drinks, an ice tea and a "coke", which the server told us was a coke-like product, not even the real thing, I think we over-paid by about 75%.
