Lisbon Lunch Review: By Luke Czarnecki
I'd give this lunch an 8/10 because the food was good, but not as good as it could be. The green eggs and ham was scrambled eggs with “ham” in it. It was flavorless. I ate a little bit of it until somebody flicked them at me. The eggs were OK, though. The chili crispitos, I heard, were not as good as the other times they served it. I heard that they were as hard as a rock. And as for the vegetables, they were good, but were doused in water. I got a tray of 75%water and 25% vegetables. They were good, too. Of all the bad things I said, lunch was good this week, and that is all I have.
